British arms sales to Saudi Arabia are lawful, UK High Court rules

Britain’s opposition Labour Party has criticised a UK High Court ruling that allows London to continue arms sales to Saudi Arabia.

On Monday, activists lost a legal fight to stop Britain from selling arms to Riyadh.

Activists allege that airstrikes by Riyadh in Yemen are violating international humanitarian law, because of the civilian casualties they cause.

Al Jazeera's Paul Brennan reports from London.
