UNSC passes biting new North Korea sanctions

The measures are the toughest "in a generation": U.S. Ambassador

The UN Security Council (UNSC) on Saturday unanimously voted to impose a new resolution on North Korea that would cut the country's export revenues by $1 billion.

The new UN measures were passed in response to North Korea's recent tests of the Hwasong-14 intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) on July 4 and July 28.
