EU sanctions more firms accused of breaking Libya arms embargo

European Union foreign ministers agreed on Monday to impose economic sanctions on two individuals and three companies accused of breaking a UN arms embargo on Libya, two diplomats said.
The two individuals are Libyans and the companies are based in Turkey, Jordan and Kazakhstan, in the maritime and aviation sectors, the diplomats said.
The European Union has a naval mission to uphold the United Nations Security Council embargo on Libya, in turmoil since the 2011 fall of Muammar Gaddafi.
