A back bench committee is to probe arms sales to Yemen
Readers of this blog, other human rights sites as well the Campaign Against the Arms Trade, will be familiar with the story of Yemen. There is a war going on there and civilians are being killed. Médécins sans Frontières facilities are being bombed. The UK is busy supplying the Saudis with arms and British military personnel are present in the command centre. £2.8bn of weapons have been supplied since the war began.
At long last the cross party committee on arms exports controls is to look into the matter. We await their report with interest.
