UN blames US, UK, France for Yemen crisis
UN experts have flagged the United States, the United Kingdom and France for human-rights abuses in the Saudi-led campaign that has crippled Yemen. In Hong Kong, Chief Executive Carrie Lam has announced the formal withdrawal of the extradition bill behind the last few weeks of violent unrest in the city. This concession is one of the protesters' five key demands. RT America’s Michele Greenstein reports from Hong Kong. Iran has increased pressure ahead of a weekend deadline for the European signatories (the E3) to comply with the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) and asked these countries to come up with a solution for Iran to sell its oil abroad. Escalated US sanctions have crippled Iran’s economy. Plus, a lawyer for now-deceased convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein’s former girlfriend, Ghislaine Maxwell, told a federal judge on Wednesday that hundreds of pages of still-secret court documents could implicate hundreds of people if released to the public.
