    UAE says Emirati soldier killed in Saudi-led war in Yemen

    The United Arab Emirates says an Emirati soldier has been killed while taking part in the Saudi-led war in Yemen.

    The state-run WAM news agency reported the soldier's death Friday. It identified the slain soldier as Sgt. Nader Mubarak Issa Suleiman.

    The UAE is one of the main allies Saudi Arabia has in its war in Yemen against Shiite rebels known as Houthis and their allies.

    The war in Yemen has killed more than 10,000 civilians and displaced over 3 million people. It began when Houthis seized Yemen's capital, Sanaa, in September 2014.

    The Saudi-led coalition began its campaign in March 2015 in support of Yemen's internationally recognized government.

    The war has ground into a stalemated conflict in recent months. Peace efforts by the United Nations also have faltered.
