Swiss block sale of gun parts to US

Switzerland has blocked the export of pistol parts to the United States, where they were to be assembled and sold to Saudi Arabia’s royal guard.

The Swiss said the pistols “could be used to commit human rights abuses”. Last year they blocked sales to the United Arab Emirates after grenades sent there ended up with Syrian rebels.
