    The Great Neck, N.Y., home purchased by Sun Sidong in December 2016.

    A five-bedroom house in New York's Long Island suburbs, listed for nearly $1.3 million, boasts a southern exposure and proximity to a country club.

    But, as NBC News reports, there's something about the property that's even more interesting: The seller, a Chinese national named Sun Sidong, has been linked by American security experts to a network of Chinese companies under Treasury sanctions for helping companies and individuals who support North Korea's nuclear and ballistic missile programs.

    According to Chinese corporate filings, Sun is the listed owner of Dandong Dongyuan Industrial Co., which has shared an email address with another Chinese company, Dandong Zhicheng Metallic Material Co., a coal exporter suspected of helping North Korea evade sanctions.
