The United States on Wednesday imposed sanctions on several individuals and entities under a program targeting the Iran-backed armed Shi'ite group Hezbollah.

Two individuals — a Belgium national and a Lebanon national — and three entities — two based in Belgium and one based in Britain — were sanctioned, according to a notice on the U.S. Department of Treasury's website.
