U.S advance resolution to end support for Saudi-Arabian led coalition

The U.S. Senate has voted to continue with a resolution that would end U.S. military support for the Saudi Arabian-led coalition in the war in Yemen.

Eleven Republicans voted with Democrats to provide the 60 votes needed to advance the war powers resolution in the Republican-led chamber.

Although the U.S President Donald Trump condemned the murder, he continues to stand by the Saudi crown prince
