The United States blacklisted seven North Korean officials and three government entities Thursday, saying they had engaged in human rights abuses that were "among the worst in the world."

The State Department and Treasury imposed economic sanctions on officials in Pyongyang's military security, labor and diplomatic outposts, as well as forced labor operations in foreign countries where North Korean soldiers are required to work for free while their wages are sent back to the financially beleaguered government.

Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said the "sanctions target the North Korean military and regime officials engaged in flagrant abuses of human rights. We also are targeting North Korean financial facilitators who attempt to keep the regime afloat with foreign currency earned through forced labor operations."

State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert said the human rights abuses also included extrajudicial killings, torture, prolonged arbitrary detention, rape, forced abortions and other sexual violence inside the country.
