House Advances Bill to End U.S. Support for Saudi-Led War in Yemen

HeadlineFeb 07, 2019

Elsewhere on Capitol Hill, the House Foreign Affairs Committee advanced a bill Wednesday that would require President Trump to remove U.S. armed forces from the Saudi-led war in Yemen, which has sparked what the United Nations calls the world’s worst humanitarian crisis in a half-century. The bill’s sponsor, Congressmember Ro Khanna of California, said in a statement, “More than 14 million Yemenis—half the country—are on the brink of famine, and at least 85,000 children have already died from hunger and disease as a result of the war. Let’s end American complicity in the atrocities in Yemen.”
