China will stop importing coal, iron, iron ore and seafood from North Korea starting today.

The move is an implementation of UN sanctions, which were imposed earlier this month in response to North Korea's two missile tests last month.

By some estimates, the move could cost North Korea about $1bn.

China accounts for more than 90% of North Korea's international trade, although it greatly reduced coal imports earlier this year.

The move comes amid a backdrop of heightened tensions between the North and the US, as well as tougher language on trade between the US and China.
