Pacific Investment Management Co. froze dividends yesterday on six municipal bond funds because the value of their investments is insufficient to cover the funds' debt.

The six funds - Pimco Municipal Income Funds II and III, Pimco New York Municipal Income Funds I and III, and Pimco California Municipal Income Funds II and III - will not declare a dividend for December or pay the dividend declared for November, which was payable Monday.
