EU okays sanctions against Libya

IRNA - Islamic Republic News Agency

Berlin, Feb 28, IRNA -- The European Union agreed Monday to slap sanctions on Libya over the deadly suppression of peaceful protests in that country, the bloc's presidency said in Brussels.

The sanctions imposed unanimously by EU member states are to include an asset freeze, weapons embargo and visa bans on regime leaders, among them Moammar Qaddafi.

The latest EU punitive measures against Libya come in the wake of UN Security Security Council sanctions passed in New York over the weekend.
