(Reuters) - The UK is exploring additional sanctions on Myanmar, foreign minister Dominic Raab said in a tweet on Wednesday.

"UK is exploring additional sanctions too – we are clear the regime should not be allowed to profit from abuse of power and human rights violations," Raab said, shortly after the United States imposed sanctions on children of Myanmar's military leader and companies.
