The US Senate voted to allow the $1.15bn sale of military equipment to Saudi Arabia amid the country’s ongoing conflict with Yemen. Saudi Arabia will receive more than 130 Abrams battle tanks, 20 armoured recovery vehicles, and other military equipment.

The announcement comes after US-backed Saudi coalition bombed a children’s school, a Doctors Without Borders hospital, and destroyed a bridge humanitarian aid groups to bring supplies into Yemen’s capital, Sana’a.
