Iran's parliament has voted in favour of boosting investment in its missile defence and foreign operations programmes by more than $500m (£386m).
The bill, which received overwhelming approval, is in response to the latest round of US sanctions against Tehran.
Iranian MPs shouted "death to America" after Speaker Ali Larijani announced the result of the vote.
It proposes that the government allocates an additional $260m for the "development of the missile programme" and the same amount to Iran's Quds Force, a branch of the country's Revolutionary Guards Corps, the official state news agency Irna said.
