Yemeni group launches lawsuit against Saudi crown prince in Paris

Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman met with Apple CEO Tim Cook during his recent Silicon Valley tour

During the visit, the Crown Prince will meet King Felipe VI, Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy, and other Spanish leaders and high ranking officials, according to a Royal Court statement carried by the Saudi Press Agency.

Press reports, experts and non-governmental organisations have documented multiple violations of worldwide humanitarian law by the Saudi-led coalition, resulting in the deaths of many civilians, including from the bombings of homes, markets, hospitals, businesses and schools, the lawsuit said.

Macron said he would decide "in the coming days" on his response, in conjunction with the U.S. and Britain.

President Macron, HRH Crown Prince co-chaired the first meeting of the Saudi-French Strategic Partnership Council, which was attended by a number of ministers and senior officials of the two governments.

More than 10,000 Yemenis have been killed and 53,000 wounded since the start of the deadly Saudi-led coalition intervention in Yemen.

He and Macron stated their conflicting views over the Iran nuclear deal, which both Saudi Arabia and the USA strongly criticize.

"France is potentially an accomplice to serious violations of humanitarian laws by selling weapons and military equipment to Saudi Arabia", said Aurelie Perrier from Amnesty International at a protest near the Eiffel Tower.

If Iran builds a nuclear bomb, "we will be in an extremely unsafe situation", the crown prince said.

"We will not tolerate ballistic missiles activities that threaten Saudi Arabia", Macron said.

Macron insisted there was no better option than enforcing the nuclear deal, but also pushed for post-2025 proposals to ensure the security of the region. Macron plans to visit the kingdom, which will be represented at the Cannes Film Festival for the first time next month, at the end of the year.

Saudi national oil company Aramco and French oil giant Total also announced a deal worth $9bn that would see the construction of a petrochemical complex in Jubail, Saudi Arabia.

A coalition of leading rights organizations have urged Spain, the last stop on the Saudi crown prince's worldwide tour, to scrap its planned sale of warships and weapons to the aggressive regime in Riyadh.
