Spicer defends US raid in Yemen

White House spokesman Sean Spicer has defended a deadly raid on an al-Qaeda stronghold in Yemen.

The White House has said a raid in Yemen on an al-Qaeda stronghold that likely killed civilians was a "very thought-out process".

As many as 23 civilians were killed in the raid on a village in Yakla district on Saturday, including 10 children, rights group Reprieve says.
