RIYADH - Four Yemeni detainees held by the United States at its Guantanamo Bay military prison landed in Saudi Arabia on Thursday, part of a final push by President Barack Obama to shrink the inmate population there before leaving office.

Family members met the detainees in tearful reunions at the royal airport in the capital Riyadh.
