In a controversial move, Saudi Arabia recently sent troops to aid the beleaguered Bahraini dictatorship, and quelled the nascent democratic protest movement.
Saudi Arabia is heavily armed by the US and many other countries, all eager to sell weapons to the Saudi autocrats whose national coffers are swelled with oil money. The UK sells arms to Saudi Arabia, including machine guns. Manroy Engineering of East Sussex has apparently sold heavy machine guns to Saudi Arabia in the past.
Are UK made machine guns or other weapons being used to repress protestors?
