U.S. Senate Votes To End Yemen War

The U.S. Republican-led senate has approved a bill to end American support for the Saudi-led coalition war in Yemen.

The bipartisan vote was 54 to 46, and is a rebuke to President Donald Trump's support of Saudi Arabia despite recent tensions.

Donald Trump has vowed to veto the resolution should it pass through the democrat-led congress.

The war in Yemen started in 2015 and has left thousands of Yemenis dead and millions more starving.

The Senate resolution, an unprecedented attempt to curtail presidential powers, seeks to end us military involvement in the conflict within 30 days.
