US presses for N Korea sanctions

US diplomats are circulating a new draft of a United Nations resolution calling
for sanctions on North Korea in response to its claimed nuclear test.

US envoy John Bolton said he hoped the new draft, which is due to be tabled later,
would pass by the weekend.

The draft targets the North's missile and nuclear programmes and invokes the UN's
Chapter Seven, which could eventually involve the use of force.

But divisions remain among key nations, with China unhappy with the new draft.
