ZURICH - Switzerland has added 116 names to its list of Iranian entities under sanctions, in response to heightened international concern about Tehran's nuclear ambitions.

The 35-nation board of the U.N. nuclear watchdog looked set on Friday to censure Iran over mounting suspicions it is seeking to develop atom bombs.

Last week's International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) report presented a stash of intelligence indicating Iran had undertaken research and experiments geared to developing a nuclear weapons capability. That redoubled calls in Western capitals for stiffer sanctions.

The new sanctions against five people and 111 organizations will come into force with immediate effect, the government said.
