WASHINGTON - The Obama administration on Sunday announced new sanctions designations targeting Iran for its ballistic missile activity, less than 24 hours after the landmark nuclear deal with Tehran entered into force, US Treasury Department officials announced.

The White House came under fire on Saturday after reports surfaced that, in negotiating a swap of prisoners with Iran, it had been successfully threatened by Iran's foreign ministry against implementing the new missile penalties. In October, Iran test-fired new ballistic missile models– designed to carry large payloads, particularly nuclear warheads - in violation of existing international laws.
