 U.S. citizen detained in Yemen reunited with family: Trump

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump said on Monday that American citizen Danny Burch has been reunited with his family and praised the United Arab Emirates for its role in "bringing Danny home."

In September 2017, Burch was detained in Yemen and had been held by the country's Houthi group until January 2018, when he was released and taken to Oman.
