Iranian MPs voted overwhelmingly in favour of boosting the country's defence budget by more than US $500m before some members shouted 'death to America' in Tehran, Sunday.

The money will be invested into its missile defence and foreign operations programmes, in a move Iran has said is not in violation of a 2015 multilateral nuclear deal.

240 out of 244 MPs sanctioned the bill, but the legislation must pass a second round before submission for final approval.
