    > A Saudi cargo ship on a suspected mission to collect weapons for use in the war in Yemen arrived in the French port of Cherbourg on Thursday.

    > In a statement 19 NGOs and left-wing parties, including Amnesty International and Oxfam France, accused Saudi Arabia of "Waging a merciless war on the people of Yemen" and "Perpetrating unspeakable atrocities against a defenceless people".

    > NGOs have called on France to identify what will be loaded onto the Bahri Yanbu, which they say has an exclusive contract with the Saudi defence ministry.

  2. Can I just say that Iran has supplied the rebels in Yemen and they routinely shoot Iranian built missiles into Saudi Arabia

  3. One thing I’ve ways respected about the French (the real ones not those Quebecois with their hick French) is they will get off their asses and legit protest. Here in North America moat of us both Canadian (incase the slam wasn’t obvious enough heh) and the U.S. are too passive.

  4. Racism, just because it is Saudi doesn’t mean it is going for weapons, they wouldn’t do this is the ship had white people.
