French company and war crimes

"The Shuhaiber family say five children were feeding pigeons on their grandfather’s roof when a missile struck the home on 17 July 2014. Brothers Jihad, 11, and Wassim, 8, and their cousin Afnan, 8, were killed immediately. The other two boys, Basel and Oday, suffered serious injuries. Even after extensive surgeries, they are unlikely to ever fully recover. “The French arms industry cannot escape its moral and legal responsibility,” Ingrid Metton, an attorney with the Paris-based law firm Ancile Avocats, stated in a press release. “Selling pieces and components used to commit war crimes must be severely punished.” " (thanks Amir)
