US seeks Kim Jong-un asset freeze



The US has proposed a range of new United Nations sanctions against North Korea, including an oil ban and a freeze on leader Kim Jong-un's assets.

 
The draft resolution circulated to the Security Council members comes after North Korea's sixth nuclear test and repeated missile launches.


Pyongyang also claims to have developed a hydrogen bomb and continues to threaten to strike the US.


China and Russia are both expected to oppose further sanctions.
