The Argentinian judicial authorities have started examining a submission by Human Rights Watch against Saudi crown prince Mohammed bin Salman, who is widely known as MbS, in which the watchdog has filed war crime charges against the Saudi-led coalition in Yemen.

MbS, who is expected to attend the G20 Summit in Argentina on November 30, may be taken to task as the Defence Minister of the Kingdom. The watchdog filed the submission on November 26, where it outlined its public findings on alleged violations of international law committed in Yemen.
