S. Korea halts Iran oil
The insurance ban, which is part of broader EU sanctions aimed at cutting the sources of finance for Iran's nuclear program, makes it impossible for South Korean companies to ship Iranian crude as they rely on EU companies to insure the shipments.
The sanctions affect two South Korean oil refiners, SK Energy Co. and Hyundai Oil Bank Co. South Korea's two other refiners don't import Iranian crude.
