EU imposes an embargo on oil imports from Syria
By The Associated Press

BRUSSELS (AP) ' The EU says it is imposing an embargo on oil imports from Syria amid continuing violence in that country.

A statement on Friday said the ban covers purchase, import and transport of oil and other petroleum products from Syria. The EU also has prohibited financial or insurance services involved in such transactions.

Four more Syrian individuals and three entities were added to the list of those targeted by an EU asset freeze and travel ban.

The U.N. estimates that 2,200 people have been killed during Syria's months-long crackdown on anti-government protesters.
