EU prepares new Syria sanctions, targets arms industry

* New EU sanctions to hit Syrian arms industry, government

* Formal approval due on Oct. 15

BRUSSELS, Oct 11 (Reuters) - The EU will toughen up its sanctions on Syria's arms industry and bar more of its officials from travelling to Europe in order to crimp President Bashar al-Assad's access to cash, diplomats said on Thursday.

They said European Union (EU) governments had reached a preliminary agreement on the measures intended to choke off the money Assad needs to fund his military in its more than 18-month bid to quash a popular rebellion against his government.

The new sanctions will be formally approved at a meeting of EU foreign ministers in Luxembourg on Monday and will target Syrian airlines, its arms industry and government, they said.

The measures come as the West struggles to devise a solution to end the violence in Syria, or formulate sanctions that could have a meaningful impact on the Syrian government and force it to stop violence against rebels. An estimated 30,000 people have died in more than 18 months of fighting.
