TEHRAN, Iran — Iranians already struggling to get by amid spiraling prices fear even more hardship is on the way with Monday's restoration of crippling U.S. sanctions.

At a Tehran pharmacy, customers said medicines were already getting further out of reach. On a normally busy commercial street there were few shoppers.

The new sanctions end all economic benefits America had granted Tehran for its 2015 nuclear deal with world powers, though Iran continues to abide by the accord, which requires it to curb its uranium enrichment. President Donald Trump withdrew from the accord in May, saying it did not address Iran's regional military activities and other issues.
