UK to Present UN Resolution Demanding Yemen Ceasefire

After a bombing killed 140 people at a funeral, the UK is creating a draft to implement a cease fire in the Yemen Civil war. Saudi Arabia launched an investigation after the strike. The UK's decision  to draft a resolution came after Russia vetoed a block that would have condemned the strike.

Western governments are under pressure to stop massive weapon sales to Saudi Arabia because of its alliance to the old Yemen government. There is now a spot light on Saudi Arabia and it is being closely watched.
