The European Union imposes new "tough" sanctions against North Korea, including financial measures, travel bans and asset freezes against individuals.

The new measures also include trade sanctions on items potentially linked to Pyonyang's ballistic and nuclear programmes.

"It is a tough package that aims to mark our opposition to the nuclear test," conducted by Pyonyang on February 12, said a senior EU diplomat.

The UN Security Council also ordered expanded sanctions against North Korea, adding its state space agency, a bank, four trading companies and four individuals to the organization's black list.
