ImageWASHINGTON (AP) — The Bush administration is imposing new sanctions on Iran's Revolutionary Guard Corps, accusing the elite military unit of illegal trade in missile technology and weapons of mass destruction.

Elements of the Revolutionary Guard are already penalized under an order that took effect last year but Thursday's announcement by the State Department covers the entire organization along with 12 other private companies and military units from China, North and South Korea, Russia, Sudan, Syria and the United Arab Emirates.

The sanctions, which are valid for two years, bar any U.S. aid, contracts and arms sales or other defense transfers to any of the identified entities. It was not immediately clear if the U.S. government does business with any of them.
