South Korea imposes new sanctions on North Korea

 

SEOUL - South Korea has added several North Korean groups and individuals to its sanctions list as part of efforts to cut off funding for the North weapons programs.

 

South Korea's government said the sanctions on 20 North Korean groups and 12 individuals took effect Monday.

 

Seoul is among the first to respond to North Korea's November 29 missile launch with fresh sanctions. The government said it hopes its move will prompt the international community to do likewise.
