    The US House of Representatives has voted to end US funding for the war in Yemen, in defiance of President Donald Trump's support for the Saudi-led coalition.

    Trump says he will veto it, even as his administration has ignored measures to reduce civilian deaths.

    Trump says Saudi Arabia is a valuable strategic partner, but witnesses say continued support could undermine regional stability.
