Saudi officers killed in helicopter crash in Yemen

Posted April 19, 2017

The incident happened as U.S. Defense Secretary James Mattis arrived in the Saudi capital, Riyadh, to discuss the Yemen war with Saudi leaders.

The United States, its allies and China are working on a range of responses to North Korea's missile test, USA officials have said.

However, the White House has said Trump does not have a "red line" when it comes to North Korea.

On Friday, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will meet with Mattis.

May's output for the U.S.is forecast to have the biggest monthly increase since February 2015.

"We agreed that such a visit should be prepared very seriously and should be filled with essential content".

Four U.S. Senators-Chris Murphy (D-CT), Rand Paul (R-KY), Dick Durbin (D-IL) and Al Franken (D-MN)-have introduced a resolution that would limit U.S. support for the Saudi war in Yemen.

Erdogan argues that concentration of power in the presidency is needed to prevent instability. Asked to comment on Erdogan's rebuke, de Zulueta said: "I don't have an opinion".

Mattis said that the US -led anti-ISIS coalition and Russian Federation are in contact over their operations in Syria to avoid unintended collisions between the two parties.

The campaign, which lacks any global mandate and has faced increasing criticism, has claimed the lives of more than 10,000 people, a lot of them civilians.

"We will work with our allies, with our partners to try to get it to the United Nations -brokered negotiating table", Mattis said. "It has gone on for a long time".

A Saudi general has disclosed that Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi had proposed sending up to 40 thousand Egyptian ground forces to Yemen to fight with the Saudi-led Arab coalition against the Houthi rebels.

Washington alleges that Iran, Saudi Arabia's regional rival, has shipped missiles to Yemen but Tehran denies the charge.

"This is something, with the number of innocent people dying inside Yemen, that simply has to be brought to an end", he said. DEEPER INTO YEMEN The United States also is considering deepening its role in Yemen's conflict by more directly aiding its Gulf allies that are battling Houthi rebels who have some Iranian support, officials say, potentially relaxing a USA policy that limited American support.

Rights groups have repeatedly criticised the coalition bombing campaign in Yemen for causing civilian casualties.
