Trump Administration Imposes New Sanctions Following Iran's Ballistic Missile Test

WASHINGTON (CBSNewYork/AP) -- The Trump administration is imposing sanctions on 13 people and a dozen companies in response to Iran's recent ballistic missile test.

The Treasury Department announced the action Friday.

President Donald Trump's national security adviser, Michael Flynn, said this week that the administration was putting Iran "on notice'' for its missile test Sunday and for supporting Shiite rebels in Yemen.

Trump lashed out against Iran in a Twitter post Friday morning, saying, "Iran is playing with fire -- they don't appreciate how 'kind' President Obama was to them. Not me.''

Iran took the first swing Friday, banning U.S. wrestlers from participating in the Freestyle World Cup competition this month. And the official IRNA news agency reports a senior Iranian cleric vowed that Tehran will continue its missile program.
