• Saudi Arabia pledges $274-M in aid for Yemen


    RIYADH: Saudi Arabia, which is leading a three-week-old air war against rebel forces in Yemen, on Saturday announced $274 million in humanitarian aid for the chaos-wracked country. The pledge, which the official SPA news agency said was ordered by King Salman, followed a UN appeal Friday for $274 million (253 million euros) to provide emergency assistance to the millions affected by the conflict. The kingdom “stands with its Yemeni brothers” and hopes for “the restoration of security and stability,” it said, quoting an official statement.
