Cluster bombs for Saudi Arabia?

MN House members voted along party lines with Reps. Paulsen, Emmer and Kline opting to continue selling cluster bombs to Saudi Arabia. Walz, Ellison, McCollum, Peterson and Noland voted against the bill. Although the bill went down, human rights advocates pointed to the close vote, 216 to 204, as progress towards ending the U.S.-Saudi trade of cluster munitions, which advocates say causes indiscriminate carnage.

The Minnesota Peace Project opposes the sale of any type of weapon to Saudi Arabia because of their human rights record and also opposes the manufacture, use or sale of cluster bombs.
