(Worthy News) - Britain, the US, and France may be complicit in war crimes in Yemen by supporting a Saudi-led coalition that starves civilians as a war tactic, the United Nations has said.
UN investigators recommended that the UK and others, who have since 2015 been arming and providing intelligence and logistics support to the coalition, impose a ban on arms transfers to prevent them from being used to commit serious violations.
The Court of Appeal in London ruled in June that the UK’s arms sales to the kingdom were unlawful because they did not properly consider whether the weapons would be used to commit "serious violations of international humanitarian law." [ Source: UK Telegraph (Read More...) ]
