The European Union says it has extended sanctions against 82 Iranian officials until 2017 because of the human rights situation in the nation

BRUSSELS (AP) — The European Union says it has extended sanctions against 82 Iranian officials until 2017 because of the human rights situation in the nation.
The 28-nation bloc has had asset freezes and travel bans in place against Iranians since 2011 because of perceived violations of human rights.
The measures came despite a recent improvement of relations linked to a nuclear deal between Western powers and Tehran.
