London High Court rejects bid to halt British arms sales to Saudi

Published: Updated:

London's High Court rejected on Monday a claim by campaigners that Britain's multi-billion-pound
arms sales to Saudi Arabia should be halted.

The Campaign Against The Arms Trade (CAAT) had sought an order to block export licenses for British-made bombs, fighter jets and other munitions which it said the Saudi-led Arab coalition was using in a campaign against Iranian-backed Houthis in Yemen's civil war.

The High Court judgement said the “claimant's claim for judicial review is dismissed," according to Reuters news agency.
