The U.S. is imposing sanctions on several senior Iranian officials and organizations for allegedly supporting Hezbollah, the Taliban and other groups designated by the U.S. as terrorist organizations.

The action was announced Tuesday by Stuart Levey, the Treasury Department's under secretary for terrorism and financial intelligence.

The move expands a U.S. list of groups and individuals with whom Americans are prohibited from doing business.

Those targeted include four senior officers of the Qods force, an elite arm of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps. Levey said one of the four officers provides financial and material support to the Taliban in Afghanistan.
