#Thanks_Salman: Yemenis hold pro-Saudi rally in U.S. during royal visit
The Yemeni protesters held portraits of the Saudi king and waved the kingdom’s flag
Yemenis in the United States have staged a rally to welcome Saudi Arabia’s King Salman and thank him for his support of the country, where the kingdom is leading an Arab coalition in a bid to restore the internationally-recognized government of President Abdrabbu Mansour Hadi back to power.
The participants of the rally, who gathered in front of the White House in Washington, held portraits of the Saudi king and waved the kingdom’s flag.
Meanwhile other Yemenis held banners where the hashtag #Thanks_Salman was written in an attempt to show their gratitude to the Saudi monarch.
Since late March, an Arab coalition led by Saudi Arabia has bombed Iranian-backed Houthi militias and forces allied to deposed leader Ali Abdullah Saleh.
