Saudi-led coalition used cluster bombs in Yemen: HRW

Yemenis gather around a crater reportedly caused by a Saudi-led airstrike on the outskirts of the capital Sanaa on December 29, 2015The Saudi-led coalition fighting in the conflict in Yemen dropped decades-old US-made cluster bombs in a civilian area, independent monitor Human Rights Watch said Thursday, branding it a war crime. The group’s report included a photograph of a section of casing from a CBU-58 cluster bomb, which it said showed it was manufactured in 1978 at a US ammunition plant in Tennessee. The United States is a close ally of Saudi Arabia and supplies much of the ordnance its forces use, but it has not exported cluster bombs of the type found in Sanaa for many years.
