Boris Johnson says Saudi Arabia is playing proxy wars

Boris Johnson has accused Britain's ally, Saudi Arabia, of engaging in "proxy wars" in the Middle East.

Speaking at a conference in Rome last week, the foreign secretary spoke of politicians "twisting and abusing religion" for political gain.

He said Saudi Arabia and Iran were "puppeteering" because of a lack of strong leadership in the region.
