Fri Aug 4, 7:47 PM ET
US President George W. Bush extended to September 29 a law that calls for sanctions on entities that invest in Iran and Libya's energy sectors, the White House said.
Bush signed a provision extending the "Iran and Libya Sanctions Act" of 1996 at his Texas ranch, where he was enjoying a 10-day vacation from Washington.
The law imposes economic sanctions on persons or firms that invest 40 million dollars or more in any 12-month period in Iran or Libya's oil or gas industries.
