Canada imposes additional sanctions on Belarusian officials - statement

OTTAWA, Oct 15 (Reuters) - Canada said on Thursday that it had imposed sanctions on an additional 31 officials in Belarus because of human rights violations by President Alexander Lukashenko and his government, according to a foreign ministry statement.

Canada and the UK together imposed a first round of sanctions last month. Canada said these sanctions were coordinated with the United States and the European Union.
