Iran promised to respond if the “blatantly hostile” vote in the House of Representatives to impose new sanctions becomes law, saying they would go against U.S. commitments under the 2015 nuclear agreement with world powers. Sanctions pursued in the U.S. Congress “can impact the successful implementation” of the deal, the state-run Iranian Students’ News Agency cited Deputy Foreign Minister Abbas Araghchi as saying on Wednesday.
The House of Representatives passed a measure on Tuesday that would strengthen sanctions on Russia and impose new ones on Iran and North Korea, though the White House has sent mixed signals over whether President Donald Trump would sign it. The bill next goes to the Senate. Trump lambasted the Iran deal during the presidential campaign and vowed to dismantle or renegotiate it if elected. On Tuesday, he called it the “single worst deal” he’d seen, renewing concerns that he may seek to end it.
Qatar’s actions to counter terrorism are falling short, the Saudi-led alliance said, adding a string of names to a list of terrorist groups it accuses the Gulf nation of backing.

Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
