U.N. Security Council Unanimously OKs Iran Sanctions
[link to www.kcci.com]

UNITED NATIONS -- The U.N. Security Council voted unanimously Saturday to impose moderately tougher sanctions against Iran for its refusal to stop enriching uranium.

The sanctions -- intended to show Tehran that defiance will leave it increasingly isolated -- include banning Iranian arms exports and freezing the assets of 28 people and organizations involved in Iran's nuclear and missile programs.

About a third of those are linked to the Revolutionary Guard, an elite military corps.

In December, the Security Council ordered all countries to stop supplying Iran with materials and technology that could contribute to its nuclear and missile programs, and to freeze assets of 10 key Iranian companies and 12 individuals related to those programs.

The risk far outweighs any benefit as the risk will vary from child to child.
