In Yemen, one of the first drone strikes launched under the new Trump administration killed at least 10 people Saturday. Yemeni news reports say the victims of the strike were al-Qaeda fighters. U.S.-backed, Saudi-led airstrikes killed more than 50 people over the weekend, as part of the Saudi and Yemen Army’s campaign to seize control of Mokha. On Monday, the Yemen Army said it had taken control of the port city.
