U.N. Security Council put more sanctions on North Korea
The U.N. Security Council voted to enforce tougher sanctions on North Korea, the BBC reports, including reducing the regime's petrol imports up to 90%.
This comes after more ballistic missile tests from the regime. The sanctions also require North Korean nationals abroad to return back to the country within a year, and bans North Korean goods like machinery and electrical equipment, per BBC.
