The European Union agreed to impose new sanctions on Iran after a deadly crackdown on recent protests over the death of a young Iranian woman, according to EU diplomats. 

The bloc’s executive arm is putting forward a package of sanctions against at least 15 Iranian people and entities linked to the death of a 22-year-old woman in policy custody, the diplomats said, adding it could formally be adopted as early as next week.
