U.N. chief Ban Ki-moon Wednesday met Saudi Arabia's powerful deputy crown prince, who remarked he was not angry with the U.N. secretary-general for briefly blacklisting a Saudi-led coalition for killing children in Yemen.Ban then removed the Saudis from the list pending a review of cases the U.N. had analyzed, though he criticized the Saudi pressure on him.On his way into the meeting, Prince Mohammad was asked if he was still angry with Ban over the blacklisting. Zerrougui had vehemently opposed Ban's decision to remove the Saudis from the blacklist, despite Saudi threats that the U.N. could face a fatwa declaring it anti-Muslim, U.N. diplomatic sources said.The Saudis have denied pressuring Ban, though they said the U.N. report was inaccurate.
