UK: Red carpet welcome for Saudi's crown prince

British Prime Minister Theresa May has defended the red carpet welcome given to Saudi Arabia’s crown prince.

It is the first day of Mohammed bin Salman‘s three-day visit to the UK, aimed at developing economic ties between the two countries.

But critics say the British government is turning a blind eye to human rights abuses in Saudi Arabia and the ongoing war in Yemen.
