The US Senate on Wednesday unanimously passed a new package of sanctions against Iran on Wednesday that aims to punish banks, insurance companies and shippers that help Tehran sell its oil.

The Senate vote came shortly after the US House of Representatives passed the legislation with a vote of 421-6.

US President Barack Obama still needs to sign the bill in order for it to become law. White House officials said on Tuesday they were reviewing the bill.
