U.S. bombs Yemen, after supporting Saudi-led war for months

"The U.S. strikes marked the first shots fired directly by the U.S. against the Houthis in Yemen’s ongoing war. They come after the U.S. has supported a destructive Saudi-led bombing campaign in Yemen, the poorest country in the Middle East, for 19 months. At least 10,000 Yemenis have been killed in the war, according to the U.N." "Yemen is the seventh Muslim-majority country with ongoing U.S. airstrikes."
