The US Senate has approved a bill to end US support for the Saudi-led coalition war in Yemen.

The bipartisan vote was 54 to 46, and is a rebuke to US President Donald Trump's support of Saudi Arabia and its leader despite recent tensions.

The US sells weapons used by the Saudis and its military provides logistical and intelligence support to the coalition for drone strikes.
