Merchants of death? Yemen: US and French arms sales under scrutiny

Donald Trump may be winding down US presence in Syria and Afghanistan but he’s vetoed a bipartisan measure to end Washington’s backing of the civil war that’s brought Yemen to the brink of famine.

Is the veto justified? How far will Congress fight the White House? What to make of Trump’s fidelity to the Yemen campaign leader Saudi crown prince Mohammed Ben Salman? Also, French weapons continue to male their way to Yemen according to freshly-leaked documents. What’s Macron’s justification there?
