UN imposes new N Korea sanctions


The United Nations Security Council has imposed further sanctions on North Korea, which last month carried out its third nuclear test.

North Korea's traditional ally, China, backed the resolution, which was passed unanimously.

Among other things, the new sanctions seek to close all avenues of funding for North Korea's nuclear programme.
