US announces new restrictions against Cuba

The U.S. government announced new restrictions against Cuba on Wednesday, tightening sanctions as part of President Donald Trump's pledge to roll back his Democratic predecessor's move toward warmer ties with Havana.
The U.S. Treasury Department said in a statement that the changes, which take effect on Thursday, are aimed at preventing U.S. trade and travellers from benefiting its military, intelligences and security arms of the Communist-ruled country.
They will expand the list of Cuban government officials barred from transactions as well as set policy to deny exports to prohibited Cuban entities.
