PressTV 7 views

A group of British lawyers has accused senior officials in Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates of complicity in war crimes committed in Yemen. The legal team, known as Guernica-37, has filed a complaint with British police, calling for the immediate arrest of 22 Saudi and Emirati officials. The human rights lawyers are specifically focusing on two airstrikes in Yemen that have killed more than 160 people, including dozens of children. Reports of torture and murder of civilians by foreign mercenaries have also been cited in the lawsuit. Saudi Arabia along with some of its Arab allies launched a devastating war on Yemen in March 2015. The conflict has so far killed tens of thousands of civilians.
