Switzerland is considering whether it will approve the European Union’s tougher sanctions against Iran following Tehran’s crackdown on protesters outraged over the death of 22-year-old Mahsa Amini in police custody.

The Federal Ministry of Economic Affairs, Education and Research (WBF) said it had noted that the EU had extended sanctions to a further 11 people and four organizations in connection with Amini’s murder and the response to the demonstrations.

“The department is currently looking at further steps,” the WBF said in a statement to Reuters.
