UK: BRIGHTON ARMS FACTORY’S LINK TO UNLAWFUL SAUDI ATTACKS IN YEMEN

The Brighton Argus on 12th July reported that UN inspectors took photographs of fragments of a bomb used in a Saudi-led coalition airstrike on a water pump factory in Yemen an attack which the UN said “violated international humanitarian law”.  Written on the side of a fragment are the words “EDO MBM” – the name of the arms manufacturer in Brighton.  The company made part of the guidance system on the US-built “Paveway IV” bomb, which helps it find its target once it has been released.  There is no suggestion that the firm has broken any laws or regulations.
