NPR's Michael Sullivan reports from Islamabad, Pakistan about UN sanctions that were placed on Afghanistan last night. The UN is limiting air travel and freezing overseas bank accounts of Afghanistan's ruling Taliban government. The U.S urged the sanctions, because the Taliban refuses to hand over alleged terrorist Osama Bin Laden, who is in hiding in Afghanistan. The sanctions come just two days after a series of rocket attacks against the U.S and UN in Islamabad, which were meant to deter sanctions.
