BRUSSELS, BELGIUM (FEBRUARY 25, 2016) (SOCIALISTS AND DEMOCRATS, EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT - ACCESS ALL) 1. CUTAWAY: VARIOUS OF THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT IN STRASBOURG (EXTERIOR) 2. CUTAWAY: VARIOUS OF THE VOTE ON THE SITUATION IN YEMEN IN THE PLENARY 3. CUTAWAY: RICHARD HOWITT TALKING TO HER ASSISTANT 4. RICHARD HOWITT (S&D MEP) SAYING (ENGLISH): “This isn’t a political battle about Iran or Saudi Arabia, it is a humanitarian catastrophe where people are loosing their lives in fast numbers - 700 children in the last year - and Europe demands that this situation changes.” 5. CUTAWAY: RICHARD HOWITT TALKING TO HER ASSISTANT 6. RICHARD HOWITT (S&D MEP) SAYING (ENGLISH): “The Socialists and Democrats group believes that it is right to have an embargo in Saudi Arabia for arms supply only, recognising that they already have had one billion extra from America this year, and that there are massive numbers of arms that have been sold to that country and in that region in the last year as well. So there’s no shortage of armaments. What there is, is a shortage of peace and diplomacy!” 7. CUTAWAY: RICHARD HOWITT TALKING TO HER ASSISTANT 8. RICHARD HOWITT (S&D MEP) SAYING (ENGLISH): “We are leading the debate this week to say on Yemen ‘enough is enough’, the death toll must end, the children must be saved and we believe ending the flow of armaments can be instrumental in helping to make that happen. ” 9. CUTAWAY: RICHARD HOWITT TALKING TO HER ASSISTANT
