North Korea’s ICBM test: US, allies impose new sanctions
The United States, South Korea, and Japan have imposed sanctions on North Korean officials connected to the country's weapons programs after Pyongyang's latest and largest intercontinental ballistic missile test last month. The US Treasury Department on Thursday named the individuals as Jon Il Ho, Yu Jin, and Kim Su Gil. South Korea's foreign ministry announced sanctions on seven other individuals and eight entities. Japan also designated three entities and an individual. The latest sanctions follow a Nov. 18 ICBM test by North Kore amid concerns that it may be about to resume nuclear weapons testing.
