A UK court of appeal has declared British arms sales to Saudi Arabia to be unlawful.
The judges accused Ministers Boris Johnson, Jeremy Hunt, and Liam Fox of having illegally authorized weapons sales to Saudi Arabia in 2016 without assessing whether the sales would pose a risk to civilians or have other humanitarian consequences. The ruling requires the UK government to suspend all new arms sales to Saudi Arabia until it can review its processes.
