The US Senate has voted in favor of advancing a resolution to end Washington’s support for Saudi Arabia’s war on Yemen. Republican senators have joined Democrats to give the measure the 60 votes required to advance the motion. The move will now pave the way for a debate and a vote in the chamber. President Donald Trump’s administration had urged lawmakers to back continued military support for Riyadh. The senate vote will be seen as a blow to the U-S President. The Saudi war has triggered a humanitarian crisis in Yemen, pushing millions of people to the brink of famine.
