U.S. imposes fresh sanctions on 1 N. Korean company, 11 individuals

WASHINGTON-- The United States blacklisted one North Korean trading firm and 11 individuals Friday as it further tightens the financial screws on Pyongyang over its nuclear and missile programs.

Paeksol Trading Corp. was sanctioned for involvement in trading in North Korean coal and minerals, a key source of hard currency for Pyongyang, and the 11 individuals were blacklisted for representing trading firms and banks that have already been sanctioned for their links to weapons proliferation.
