The Spanish Defense Ministry's spokeswoman confirms media reports that Spain has halted the sale of bombs to Saudi Arabia.
The deal with Riyadh was reached in 2015 by Spain's former conservative government. According to the Cadena SER radio station, the current Socialist cabinet led by Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez has decided to cancel the deal and return 9.2 million euros (about $10.6 million) already paid by the Saudis.
According to the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI), 8.3 percent of Spain's total arms exports in 2013-2017 went to Saudi Arabia.
On August 9, the coalition's strike hit a school bus full of children, killing dozens of people, according to the International Committee of the Red Cross. The Saudi-led coalition confirmed that an airstrike on a school bus which killed dozens was unjustified, claiming it would punish those responsible for the mistakes that led to the tragedy.
