TOKYO - Japan said on Tuesday it has imposed sanctions on Libya, including freezing assets of leader Muammar Gaddafi and several other Libyans, in line with a UN Security Council resolution.

The United Nations and European Union have imposed sanctions on Libya and frozen government assets after forces loyal to Gaddafi fired on protesters in the oil-producing country.

"Based on the UN resolution, the cabinet agreed that Japan would carry out these measures, for the sake of unity with the international community," Japanese Finance Minister Yoshihiko Noda told a news conference after a cabinet meeting.
