New Sanctions For North Korea

A United Nations committee has added a number of North Korean individuals and firms to a sanctions blacklist.
Five individuals, five firms and two weapons-related items are subject to the new sanctions regime.
A UN resolution in June toughened sanctions against North Korea after it conducted nuclear and missile tests.
The last time the UN imposed sanctions on Pyongyang, it responded by carrying out a nuclear test, says the BBC's Laura Trevelyan in New York.
