WASHINGTON, Nov 23: US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said Friday the United States will hold members of the Iranian regime accountable for their violent repression of the Iranian people.

"The US is sanctioning the Minister of Information and Communications Technology, Mohammad Jahromi, for helping shut down the Iranian internet," Pompeo tweeted on Friday.

Meanwhile, Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said: "Iran’s leaders know that a free and open internet exposes their illegitimacy, so they seek to censor internet access to quell anti-regime protests."
