US slaps sanctions over North Korea overseas workers

Washington: The United States on Tuesday imposed sanctions on two companies for exploiting North Korean overseas labour after a UN deadline to return workers who bring vital revenue to the regime.
The Treasury Department imposed sanctions on the Korea Namgang Trading Corporation, a North Korean company which it said has maintained workers in Russia, Nigeria and the Middle East. It also blacklisted Beijing Sukbakso, a Chinese company that has handled lodging and remittances for workers. (AFP)
