UN imposes sanctions on Eritrea
The resolution places an arms embargo on Eritrea, and also imposes travel bans and asset freezes on businesses and individuals.
Members of the Eritrean leadership are expected to be affected. The resolution was backed by 13 votes to 15.
China abstained while Libya, the only Arab council member, voted against.
Eritrean officials have repeatedly denied the allegations, calling them a "fabrication" of US intelligence.
