British banned munitions used in Yemen by Saudi Arabia

"The British defence secretary Michael Fallon has seen government analysis indicating that UK-made cluster munitions were used by the Saudi-led coalition in the current conflict in Yemen, sources have told the Guardian." "The UK is a firm ally of Saudi Arabia in the war in Yemen, with British military personnel helping train its troops to how to target bombs. Britain has also sold billions of pounds in defence equipment including planes to the Saudi military since the start of the war." (thanks Amir)
