Protesters and supporters of Saudi Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman Al Saud both turned out in London yesterday (March 7) for his arrival in the city as part of a three-day state visit.

The protesters were demonstrating against the Saudi Government's role in the war in Yemen, chanting "Hands off Yemen! Stop the killing now!"

A small group of supporters of the crown prince took part in a counter-protest, waving Saudi flags and dancing.

The Prince has since met with both the Queen and Prime Minister Theresa May as part of a diplomatic mission to strengthen UK-Saudi relations.
