US says Saudi Ara­bia, UAE pro­tect­ing civil­ians in Ye­men war

USA TODAY International Edition - - FRONT PAGE -

De­spite mount­ing civil­ian ca­su­al­ties, the Trump ad­min­is­tra­tion has de­ter­mined that Saudi Ara­bia and the United Arab Emi­rates are do­ing enough to pro­tect civil­ians in their mil­i­tary cam­paign in Ye­men.

The move an­nounced Wed­nes­day by Sec­re­tary of State Mike Pom­peo al­lows the ad­min­is­tra­tion to con­tinue to sup­port the Saudi-led coali­tion in op­er­a­tions against Ira­nian-backed rebels that have been de­nounced by hu­man rights groups as pos­si­ble war crimes.
