US welcomes Saudi comment on Yemen combat nearing ‘end’ – Yahoo News

A Saudi announcement that major combat is nearing an end in Yemen was welcomed by Washington Thursday, as the death toll from alliance air strikes on a market rose to 119. The United Nations childrens’ agency gave the new toll, nearly three times that previously reported, for the Saudi-led strikes on the market this week in northern Yemen’s rebel-held Hajja province. It is one of the deadliest incidents since coalition forces intervened on March 26 last year to support President Abedrabbo Mansour Hadi after rebels seized large parts of Yemen including the capital Sanaa.
