News video: North Korea Gets New Sanctions From U.N.North Korea received new sanctions from the United Nations Security Council on Wednesday that "aim to cut the Asian state's annual export revenue by more than a quarter." The imposed sanctions are a response to the country's "fifth and largest nuclear test in September." The U.N. council unanimously passed a resolution that cuts coal exports in North Korea by 60 percent, with an annual cap of about $400 million. Copper, nickel, silver, zinc, and statue exports have also been banned.
