Congress Backs Bill that Bans Iranian Ambassador

Congress on Thursday backed a bill that would bar Iran's choice for ambassador to the United Nations from stepping on U.S. soil, reports The Associated Press (AP).

The House unanimously approved the legislation on Thursday by voice vote, four days after a similar vote in the Senate. The unusually quick action underscored the strong bipartisan opposition to Iran's choice.
