EU embargoes Syrian bank,  firms
BRUSSELS: The European Union targeted three Syrian companies in an expanded sanctions list on Saturday, including a real estate bank, an investment group and a transport firm, the EU's Official Journal showed.

The sanctions mean that Europeans will be banned from doing business with the companies -- Real Estate Bank, Mada Transport
and Cham Investment Group.

Four Syrian businessmen were also added to a list of people affected by EU asset freezes and travel bans. (Reuters)
