LONDON (Reuter) - The European Union is to tighten sanctions against Nigeria's military government to press it to restore democracy, Britain said yesterday. Alastair Goodlad, a Foreign Office minister, told parliament that Britain would restrict the movement of defence officials from the Nigerian embassy in London, curb arms exports to the country and expel four Nigerian military students. He said the EU's 11 other member states would take similar measures.
