The Senate voted Thursday night to strengthen existing sanctions against and impose new ones aimed at its gasoline supplies as part of the effort to dissuade Teheran from pursuing nuclear weapons and cracking down on internal dissent.





"We have all watched the Iranian regime oppress its own people on the streets of and continue to defy the international community on nuclear issues," Democratic Majority Leader Harry Reid said in a statement following a voice vote that approved the bill. "That is why it is so important that we move this legislation forward quickly."
