US launches immediate review of Saudi-led coalition in Yemen

District of Columbia: The United States said Saturday it had launched an "immediate review" of the Saudi-led coalition in Yemen, blamed for an air strike that killed more than 140 people.

"We are deeply disturbed by reports of today`s air strike on a funeral hall in Yemen, which, if confirmed, would continue the troubling series of attacks striking Yemeni civilians," White House National Security Council spokesman Ned Price said in a statement.

"US security cooperation with Saudi Arabia is not a blank check... In light of this and other recent incidents, we have initiated an immediate review of our already significantly reduced support to the Saudi-led Coalition and are prepared to adjust our support so as to better align with US principles, values and interests, including achieving an immediate and durable end to Yemen`s tragic conflict."
