Rights group urge Australia to halt arms sales to Saudi Arabia, UAE

Human rights groups investigating atrocities in Yemen have urged Australia to immediately suspend arms exports to Saudi Arabia and the UAE. The UN says the war is fuelling the world’s worst humanitarian crisis. As of February, the UN had verified the death or injury of 17,700 civilians as a direct result of the fighting. Australia argued the arms it sells go through extensive checks.
