EU sanctions more firms accused of breaking Libya arms embargo, diplomats say

BRUSSELS, Sept 21 (Reuters) - European Union foreign ministers agreed on Monday to impose economic sanctions on two individuals and three companies accused of breaking a U.N. arms embargo on Libya, two diplomats said.

The two individuals are Libyans and the companies are based in Turkey, Jordan and Kazakhstan, in the maritime and aviation sectors, the diplomats said, confirming a Reuters report from Sept. 9.
