New US blacklist targets N.Korea leader Kim Jong Un’s No. 2

The United States blacklisted North Korean leader Kim Jong Un’s right-hand man on Thursday, after UN Security Council voted unanimously to impose harsh new sanctions on the isolated state over its nuclear weapons programme.

Hwang Pyong So, vice chairman of the North’s powerful National Defense Commission headed by Kim, was one of several officials added to a list of Specially Designated Nationals by the US Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control.
