S. Korea calls for strong implementation of N. Korea sanctions
SEOUL, May 3 (Yonhap) -- South Korea urged the world Thursday to "more effectively" implement U.N. sanctions against North Korea, after the U.N. Security Council sanctioned an additional three North Korean state firms as punishment for Pyongyang's long-range rocket launch last month.

The unsuccessful launch on April 13, which Pyongyang insisted was to put a satellite into orbit, breached U.N. resolutions banning the North from conducting any launch using ballistic missile technology. The North's rocket broke apart shortly after blast-off.
