Labour’s Jeremy Corbyn Condemns British-Backed Saudi-Led War in Yemen

London, November 23 (RHC)-- British Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn has condemned British support for a U.S.-and-U.K.-backed, Saudi-led bombing campaign in Yemen, which has killed over 12,000 people, spawned a massive cholera epidemic, and put 7 million people on the brink of famine. 

In a public letter, Corbyn urged Prime Minister Theresa May to: “Lift the Saudi blockade in order to stop this already catastrophic humanitarian crisis becoming one of the worst combinations of famine and disease since the 1980s, with millions of innocent people, especially children, at risk of death.” 

In related news, the Donald Trump administration is cautioning Americans against traveling to Saudi Arabia—not over the country’s abysmal human rights record, but because of the threat posed by ballistic missiles fired into the kingdom by rebels in neighboring Yemen.  The travel warning by the State Department came just over two weeks after Houthi fighters launched a missile at the main airport in Riyadh.  It was shot down and crashed in the desert.
