WASHINGTON - The United States may halt refueling of aircraft from the Saudi-led coalition engaged in Yemen, two US officials told Reuters on Friday, a move that would end of the most divisive aspects of US assistance to Saudi Arabia's war in Yemen.

The officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity, acknowledged the matter was under consideration by both countries and suggested that the decision could ultimately be made by Saudi Arabia, given its own refueling capacity.

It was not immediately clear what had prompted the change, which comes at a time of international outrage over the murder of US-based journalist Jamal Khashoggi, and after Democratic and Republican lawmakers threatened to take action in Congress next week over the refueling operations.

The Pentagon declined to comment.
