US blocks funds for Iran clinic


A Bri­tish coach of Iran’s na­tional rugby team says an at­tempt to raise funds on­line to pay for train­ing and equip­ment has been thwarted by US sanc­tions. Liam Dun­seath, who be­gan coach­ing the team in 2015, says a cam­paign he set up on crowd­fund­ing plat­form Go Fund Me was blocked by the US-based firm. “The coach­ing clinic in Iran I was rais­ing money for is sports­based and shouldn’t be caught up with the sanc­tions,” said Dun­seath.
