U.N. Security Council Sets Vote For North Korea Sanctions – AP

From AP via The Wall Street Journal:

The U.N. Security Council will vote Saturday after reaching a broad compromise on a resolution that would impose nonmilitary sanctions on for the nuclear test it announced earlier this week.

Both the U.S. and Russian indicated that more tinkering would have to be done Friday before the resolution goes to the 15-nation body.

In Moscow, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said elements of the draft still require “discussion and clarification,” the RIA-Novosti news agency reported.

U.S. Ambassador John Bolton said the council’s agreement just five days after North Korea’s announcement it had detonated a nuclear device was “a sign of the determination of the council in the face of this threat to move quickly.”[Full Text and Subscribers Only]
