TEHRAN, Oct. 5 (Xinhua) -- The Iranian judiciary will sue 46 U.S. nationals for their alleged role in sanctioning Iran, Ali Baqeri, the secretary of Iran Judiciary Human Rights Bureau, said on Monday.

"With the collaboration of relevant bodies, including the Intelligence Ministry, 46 American people were identified to be sued by the prosecutor general of Tehran for their role in exerting oppressive anti-Iran sanctions," Baqeri was quoted as saying by official IRNA news agency.

The judiciary will respond to the "hostile and criminal" measures of the United States over its sanctions, he stressed. Enditem
