China, Russia and Cuba won seats on the UN’s premier human rights body Tuesday despite opposition from activist groups over their abysmal human rights records, but another target, Saudi Arabia, lost. In secret-ballot voting in the 193-member UNGA, Pakistan received 169 votes, Uzbekistan 164, Nepal 150, China 139 and Saudi just 90 votes. In 2016, Saudis won a seat with 152 votes.
