British Minister: Yemen Bombing Deliberate Error by Saudi Arabia (US & UK Still Selling Arms to Them)

  • Published on Oct 20, 2016
    A British minister has labeled the recent Saudi bombing of a funeral in Yemen as “a deliberate error”, amid a growing outcry over the tragic incident. Britain’s minister for the Middle East Tobias Ellwood says Riyadh had specifically ORDERED the attack which led to the deaths of 140 civilians. Ellwood added that the deliberate error was made by an individual, who must face punishment. He also called for compensation for the victims. The October 8th airstrike on the funeral in the Yemeni capital drew strong condemnation from the international community. Riyadh initially denied responsibility for the attack which also left 534 people wounded, but later confessed to bombing the funeral.
