UN seeks deal on Iran sanctions
Iranian dissidents protested at the UN against Iran's policies
The United Nations Security Council is trying to reach agreement on the next stage of sanctions to be imposed on Iran over its nuclear programme.
The council's five permanent members are pushing for consensus on a draft resolution but have so far failed to persuade some other members.
They want to augment existing sanctions with a ban on arms exports from Iran and further financial restrictions.
Iran's supreme leader warned it would not stop its nuclear activities.
