UK PM to raise Yemen concerns in Saudi crown prince visit


Saudi Arabia's crown prince is starting a three-day visit to the UK amid protests planned against his country's role in the war in Yemen. Mohammed bin Salman, 32, is seen by some as a modernising force in the Gulf State. He is due to hold talks with Theresa May and have lunch with the Queen. The UK hopes to capitalise on the Saudi economy's opening-up but No 10 said the PM would also express "deep concern" at the humanitarian situation in Yemen.
