Yemen funeral strike, UN rues failure to punish war crimes

The top U.N. human rights official renewed his call on Monday for an international probe into possible war crimes committed in Yemen, saying the “outrageous” weekend bombing on a funeral showed that violations continued unpunished.

 

Zeid Ra’ad al Hussein, United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, said in a statement that countries belonging to the U.N. Human Rights Council had contributed to “a climate of impunity” in Yemen by failing to investigate adequately.

 

The Council last month declined to set up an independent inquiry into abuses in Yemen, where a Saudi-led coalition is battling Shi’ite Houthi fighters and forces loyal to former President Ali Abdullah Saleh.
