The UK is selling arms to Saudi Arabia

"The link between the death toll in Yemen and the sale of arms by British companies to Saudi Arabia can be seen in two new charts produced exclusively for The Independent. As the conflict enters its third year one shows that the UK has licensed an estimated £3.3bn in arms sales to the oil rich Middle Eastern kingdom since it began. In the same period, a second chart indicated that 4,773 civilians have been killed and 8,272 injured."
