The United Nations Security Council has agreed on fresh sanctions against North Korea over its missile programme.

A resolution banning North Korean exports and limiting investments in the country was passed unanimously.

Pyongyang tested two intercontinental ballistic missiles in July, claiming it now had the ability to hit the US.
