UN rights council ends probe into possible war crimes by Saudi-led coalition in Yemen

PressTV.ir The UN Human Rights Council has voted to drop a UN probe into possible war crimes by the Saudi-led coalition in Yemen. NGOs and rights groups have decried the decision as intense Saudi arm-twisting. It marked the first time in the council’s 15-year history that a resolution was defeated.

Earlier this week, several rights advocacy groups revealed that Saudi Arabia had been heavily lobbying against the resolution that would extend…

Press TV interview with Kevin Barrett, Veterans Today Editor The United Nations is finally facing the facts: The Saudi war on Yemen is turning into a holocaust. But it is the US Congress that has the power to stop the war. Will Democrats and Republicans unite to deliver a slap in the face to Trump-Kushner and their Saudi partners in crime?
