UK Lawmakers Call for End to Saudi Arms Trade, Push for War Crimes Probe

Nadia Prupis, staff writer

The Committee of Arms Export Controls stated in a draft report leaked to the BBC Wednesday that it "seems inevitable" Saudi Arabia's violations of armed conflict law would be done with arms from the U.K.
