US cuts military advisers to Saudi-led coalition in Yemen: US Navy

Riyadh: The US military has slashed the number of intelligence advisers directly supporting the Saudi-led coalition`s air war in Yemen, the US Navy said on Saturday.

The reassignment of personnel, around June, occurred because “there was not the same sort of requests coming in for assistance” from the Saudis, Fifth Fleet spokesman Lieutenant Ian McConnaughey told AFP from Bahrain.
