Saudi officers killed in helicopter crash in Yemen
Saudi Arabia has led a coalition battling Iran-backed Huthi rebels in its impoverished southern neighbour for the past two years.
At least 10,000 people have been killed and more than 3 million displaced in the war, now in its third year.
Among those killed were a Sudanese commander and two Emirati troops, who were deployed to Yemen as part of a Riyadh-led military coalition helping the militants loyal to the country's former government.
Multiple rounds of U.N-brokered peace talks have failed to bridge the gap between the warring parties in Yemen.
En route to Riyadh, Mattis said, "Our goal is for that crisis [in Yemen], that ongoing fight, be put in front of a United Nations -brokered negotiating team and try to resolve this politically as soon as possible".
While the USA military has partnered with parts of the Saudi coalition, such as the United Arab Emirates, to go after al-Qaeda, its support for Saudi forces fighting the Houthi rebels has been far more limited.

During this interview, Asiri added that the war methodology in Yemen that stipulates only the presence of Yemeni forces on the ground stood as an obstacle in front of Egypt's participation in the ongoing war. The White House recently granted the USA military broader authority to carry out strikes against al Qaeda-linked al Shabaab militants in Somalia.
