EU slaps more sanctions on Libya: France

Forty-two people and 49 "entities" in total are now targeted by EU sanctions on Libya.



Paris: The European Union has slapped further
sanctions on the regime of Muammar Gaddafi, targeting two
"economic entities" linked to the Libyan strongman, France
said Tuesday.

The measures decided yesterday "reinforce the system of
international sanctions" already in place against Gaddafi`s
regime, foreign ministry spokeswoman Christine Fages told
reporters.

They target the Al-Sharara, which operates in the oil
sector, and an administrative organisation which are both
"directly linked" to Gaddafi, she said.

Forty-two people and 49 "entities" in total are now
targeted by EU sanctions on Libya, she said.

An EU assets freeze and travel ban against dozens of
Gaddafi loyalists and firms suspected of propping up the
regime includes national oil vehicles, the Libyan leader`s
inner circle and Libya`s busy low-fare Afriqiyah airline.

The EU has also imposed an arms embargo and officially
opened an office in the rebel capital of Benghazi.
