LONDON: Britain on Thursday slapped sanctions on The Gambia’s former president Yahya Jammeh as it widened travel bans and economic sanctions for human rights abuses worldwide.

The former dictator, whose election defeat to Adama Barrow in Dec 2016 forced him to flee, was one of three from the West African nation on an updated list targeting 10 people across the globe.

In Pakistan, Rao Anwar Ahmed Khan, a former Karachi police “encounter specialist” suspected of being behind more than 190 “hits” that led to more than 400 deaths, also faces restrictions.
