Saudi Arabia on UN 'shame list' of child killers
A UN report on violators of children’s rights in the world will include Saudi Arabia on the basis of its leadership of a war against Yemen which has killed a large number of children, according to the London-based newspaper al-Quds al-Arabi.
The Security Council is holding a session on 31 October to discuss the report of the secretary general on children in conflict.
Al-Quds al-Arabi learned from trustworthy sources that the report includes the Saudi-led Arab coalition.
In addition, Saudi Arabia will be included on a “shame list” because of the Yemen war.
Cafe patrons beaten
Jordanians circulated pictures taken by a surveillance camera in a cafe in Irbid city, northern Jordan, where security forces attack a number of people in a "savage" manner.
This video sparked a wave of anger on social media networks in Jordan, according to the Arabi 21 news website.
The footage shows a group of people wearing civilian clothes entering a cafe to arrest several patrons. They violently hit them with the shop’s seats before pulling them out. One of the patrons is covered in blood from an injury to the head.
Jordanian sources said the attack happened a few days ago as police raided the cafe to arrest members of an extortion racket. Warning: the following video contains potentially disturbing scenes of violence.
