Amnesty urges arms restrictions on Saudi-led coalition members

Armed Yemeni tribesmen from the Popular Resistance Committees, supporting forces loyal to Yemen's Saudi-backed President Abedrabbo Mansour Hadi, hold a position on the outskirts of Sirwah, west of Marib city, on October 6, 2015Amnesty International called Wednesday for a “suspension” in transfers of certain arms to members of a Saudi-led coalition battling Yemeni rebels following “damning evidence of war crimes”. The London-based watchdog urged holding an “independent, effective investigation of violations” by the coalition, in which US allies the United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia are playing a key role. Amnesty’s latest report “uncovers yet more evidence of unlawful airstrikes carried out by the Saudi Arabia-led coalition, some of which amount to war crimes,” said Donatella Rovera, who headed the group’s fact-finding mission to Yemen.
