WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The United States issued fresh Iran-related sanctions on Thursday, targeting Tehran's morality police and security officials, the Treasury Department said in a post on its website.

The move comes after the death of a young woman in police custody triggered nationwide protests in Iran and a subsequent warning from Iran's powerful Revolutionary Guards.
