U.K. admits training Saudi forces used to crush Arab uprising

Documents obtained by The Observer under Britain's Freedom of Information Act revealed that British forces regularly instructed the Saudi national guard in "weapons, fieldcraft and general military skills training, as well as incident handling, bomb disposal, search, public order and sniper training."
