Foreign companies stepping away from Iran

Germany's ThyssenKrupp said on Thursday it would freeze new business with  Iran with immediate effect in response to ever-harsher sanctions against the Islamic Republic.

Iran's day-to-day business is affected by tighter international, U.S. and European Union sanctions imposed in response to Western fears the country's nuclear activities are aimed at making a bomb. Tehran says it has no such intention.
