In the aftermath of new weapons testing, the U.S. Senate slaps fresh sanctions on North Korea.
FOX’s Jared Halpern has more from Capitol Hill:
Unanimous approval for a bill adding more stringent sanctions on the North Korean regime, targeting the Pyongyang’s ability to finance development of nuclear war heads and long-range missiles.
The package also approves $50-million in spending to transmit radio broadcasts into North Korea, purchase communications equipment and increase humanitarian assistance.
The 96-0 included ayes from Republican presidential hopefuls Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio, both leaving the South Carolina stump to vote.
Similar legislation has already cleared the House.
