NEW YORK - The United States has blocked the import of goods suspected to have been made with forced labour from five countries, including clothing from China, in a rare crackdown on slave labour.

The US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) said it had seized five different products based on information indicating the goods were made using slave labour overseas.

As well as clothing from China, they included rubber gloves made in Malaysia, diamonds from Zimbabwe, gold mined in the Democratic Republic of the Congo and 'bone black', a pigment made from charred animal bones in Brazil.
