United Nations has agreed to send war crimes investigators to Yemen to examine alleged violations committed by all parties to country’s civil war.
The UN Human Rights Council adopted a resolution to set up a group of “Eminent” experts.
It was a compromise between western powers and a group of Arab States that included Saudi Arabia.
According to the UN, more than 8,530 people, 60% of them civilians, have been killed and 48,800 injured in air strikes and fighting on the ground since march 2015.
The conflict has also left 20.7 million people in need of some kind of humanitarian assistance, created the largest food security emergency in the world, and led to a cholera outbreak that is believed to have affected 700,000 people since April.
