People have taken to the streets in Saudi Arabia’s eastern province to denounce a death sentence by the country’s top court against the prominent Shia cleric, Sheikh al-Nimr.
Meanwhile, the Saudi bombing of civilian areas in Yemen and most recently a hospital run by MSF, has been widely condemned. At first, the Saudi regime denied the bombing. Now, their ambassador to the UN has admitted a “mistake” was made when Riyadh-led coalition jets bombed a “Doctors Without Borders” hospital in Yemen, but says the medical charity provided incorrect geographic coordinates – a claim that has been tagged by observers as “absurd.”
Saudi Arabia also seems to be prolonging its denial of responsibility for the Mina tragedy during Hajj, whilst it is also prolonging its 31-week war on its impoverished neighbor country, Yemen, having already killed several thousands. Yet, the regime now claims that the UK opposition leader, Jeremy Corbyn, has breached respect. Why? Because he blocked a multi-million-dollar deal between Britain and its ally by writing to PM David Cameron to do so on grounds of the regime’s atrocious human rights abuses
