From daily The Morning Star in Britain, Friday, October 12, 2018:
Natural History Museum slammed for hosting event by Saudi embassy
The event last night was condemned by the Campaign Against the Arms Trade (CAAT), which said that Saudi Arabia is embroiled in a row over the alleged murder of a Saudi journalist in Turkey, and is involved in a war on the Yemen which has brought death and famine to hundreds of thousands of civilians.
A museum spokesman said the event was booked by the Saudi embassy over two months ago as a venue for an external event to celebrate Saudi National Day.
“No museum staff are attending as guests or speaking at the event”, the spokesman said.
One would expect at least one museum staff member to be present to open and close the door, and maybe at least another one to prevent drunk or drugged Saudi fat cats from damaging prehistoric animal fossils or other exhibits.
