US House votes to limit Trump war powers on Iran
Friday, 10 January, 2020, 12:40
The US House of Representatives has approved a largely symbolic resolution seeking to limit President Donald Trump's ability to make war on Iran.
The measure passed the Democratic-run chamber 224-194, but faces an uphill climb in the Republican-held Senate.
It aims to mandate congressional approval for any conflict with Iran, except in cases of an imminent attack against the US.
Neither the US nor Iran has declared plans for further military action.
Iran this week fired missiles at Iraqi bases housing American forces, injuring no-one, after the US last week killed a senior Iranian commander in a Baghdad drone strike.
