Britain has blood on its hands over Yemen

"But, as the UN reported last year, it is a military coalition led by Saudi Arabia that is responsible for the vast majority of civilian deaths. Some of those civilians are being killed by British-made bombs, sold to the Saudi dictatorship by our government. Since the Saudis began pummelling Yemen, the government has granted licences for £3.3bn worth of arms. It is a cause for national shame." "Britain’s government is a key enabler of grotesque human rights abuses."
