US House defeats Iran deal approval resolution in symbolic vote

The US House of Representatives defeated a resolution backing the nuclear agreement with Iran on Friday, in a symbolic vote engineered by congressional Republicans who object to the deal. House members voted 269 to 162 to defeat the resolution in a strongly partisan vote, part of an effort by congressional Republicans to underscore their objection to the accord despite a vote on Thursday in the Senate that blocked a Republican-led effort to kill the international pact.
