(BBC) – The Ministry of Defence is “tracking” 252 allegations of humanitarian law violations by the Saudi-led coalition in Yemen, the BBC has learned. The UN estimates that up to 10,000 people have died in the country since war began in March 2015. The MoD declined to say if British-supplied arms were involved in any of the allegations. Former Business Secretary Vince Cable said he was “staggered” by the number of potential breaches. Mr Cable told the BBC if he were still in government, arms exports to the Saudis would have been stopped “a long time before now”.
