UK court to examine legality of resuming Saudi arms sales

LONDON’S High Court will today examine the legality of a UK government decision to renew selling arms to Saudi Arabia that could be used in the war in Yemen.

A UK-based civil society group, Campaign Against Arms Trade (CAAT), has brought the legal action, accusing the government of contributing to breaches of international law and the world’s largest humanitarian disaster, which has claimed tens of thousands of lives.
