A Saudi-led coalition declared an end Tuesday to its military campaign nearly a month after launching air strikes against rebels in Yemen, saying their threat to Saudi Arabia and its neighbours had been removed.
The coalition has "ended Operation Decisive Storm based on a request by the Yemeni government and President Abedrabbo Mansour Hadi," its spokesman, Brigadier General Ahmed al-Assiri, told a press briefing in the Saudi capital.
