Negotiators say they're quietly optimistic of a deal on Iran's nuclear program as talks restart in Geneva.
The US has targeted an Iranian network of businesses that allegedly funded a paramilitary group affiliated with the Revolutionary Guard. The so-called Basij group reportedly trained and deployed child soldiers in Syria.

The bill paves the way for Iran to join a UN convention to combat money laundering and the funding of terrorism. The Islamic Republic has been under pressure from signatories of the nuclear deal.
Iran has criticized the decision to end the treaty, calling the Trump administration an "outlaw regime." The decision came hours after the UN's top court ordered the US to lift sanctions on humanitarian goods to Iran.
