Allow immediate aid to Yemen: Trump to Saudi


Washington US President Donald Trump on Wednesday took the rare step of publicly demanding that ally Saudi Arabia immediately allow humanitarian aid into war-ravaged Yemen, as residents in the capital Sanaa scrambled for supplies. Trump stopped short of calling for a pause in the US-backed, Saudi-led bombing of the country, which is enduring what the United Nations calls the world's worst humanitarian crisis. But Trump said he had asked aides to contact the Saudi leadership"to request that they completely allow food, fuel, water, and medicine to reach the Yemeni people who desperately need it.""This must be done for humanitarian reasons immediately," he said in statement.
