U.S. sanctions 8 people and entities following North Korean missile launches

The Biden administration announced Wednesday that it was imposing sanctions on eight people and entities for their work in developing weapons of mass destruction and ballistic missile-related programs for Pyongyang.

The sanctions come on the heels of at least two known North Korean ballistic missile tests. The Treasury Department first announced sanctions on five North Koreans, then the State Department followed with measures targeting one North Korean, one Russian and a Russian entity.

The most recent test came Monday, the second launch in a week. It originated from the northern province of Jagang and traveled some 430 miles before plunging into the East Sea, according to South Korea’s Joint Chiefs of Staff.
