German Foreign Minister Annalena Baerbock on Thursday said she was pushing for EU sanctions on Iran over the Islamic republic's lethal crackdown on protests sparked by the death of a young woman in police custody.

"Within the framework of the EU, I am doing everything I can to get sanctions under way against those in Iran who are beating women to death and shooting demonstrators in the name of religion," Baerbock wrote on Twitter.
