EU Boosts N. Korea Sanctions           02/27 05:54

   BRUSSELS (AP) -- The European Union is boosting its sanctions against North 
Korea in line with a U.N. Security Council Resolution following another nuclear 
test in September last year.

   The EU member states said in a statement Monday they will restrict trade in 
coal and iron and ban imports of several other metals. The EU also imposed a 
ban on helicopter and ship exports and tighten restrictions in the financial 
services after the U.N. decision of November.

   The EU first imposed sanctions on North Korea in late 2006. They target its 
nuclear, weapons of mass destruction and missile programs.

   Measures include bans on the trade of arms, goods and technology that could 
contribute to the programs.
