TOYAKO, Hokkaido — Britain and the United States are pushing for further sanctions against the regime of Zimbabwe President Robert Mugabe, British Prime Minister Gordon Brown said Wednesday.

“We are announcing new sanctions at the United Nations Security Council against an illegitimate regime that has blood on its hands. That resolution says the only legitimate election that took place in Zimbabwe was on March 29, and that we do not consider the recent election as either free or fair,” Brown told a news conference following the conclusion of the Group of Eight summit in Toyako, Hokkaido.
