UN experts say they are investigating at least 30 instances in 17 countries of North Koreans using cyberattacks to illegally raise money for its nuclear program -- and they are calling for sanctions against ships providing gasoline and diesel to the country.

Thirteen countries suffered one attack -- Costa Rica, Gambia, Guatemala, Kuwait, Liberia, Malaysia, Malta, Nigeria, Poland, Slovenia, South Africa, Tunisia and Vietnam, it said.
