BRUSSELS - The European Union targeted three Syrian companies in an expanded sanctions list on Saturday, including a real estate bank, an investment group and a transport firm, the EU's Official Journal showed.

The sanctions mean that Europeans will be banned from doing business with the companies - Real Estate Bank, Mada Transport and Cham Investment Group.

Four Syrian businessmen were also added to a list of people affected by EU asset freezes and travel bans.
