Two months after the United Nations blacklisted a Saudi Arabia-led military coalition for killing children in Yemen, Riyadh has not provided enough proof that it should be permanently removed from the register, U.N. diplomatic sources said on Monday.Ban is to brief the U.N. Security Council on the report on Tuesday. He plans to tell the 15-member council that the United Nations will continue to work with Saudi Arabia on the issue and reinforce that only the blacklist is under review, not the substance of the report, a U.N. diplomatic source said.In a rare move, Ban -- who steps down at the end of the year after a decade in the top U.N. job -- publicly slammed Saudi Arabia for exerting unacceptable pressure on the world body over the children and armed conflict report.
