AP: Yemen war binds U.S., allies, al Qaeda

A new round of deadly Saudi-coalition airstrikes have been pounding Yemen. This comes after the Associated Press revealed the U.S.-backed coalition paid some al Qaeda fighters to leave key battle areas in the war-torn nation. The investigation also found militants sometimes joined the coalition, putting them on the same side as the U.S in the war. The Pentagon denies there's any evidence of these situations. Associated Press Middle East Enterprise Editor Lee Keath, who worked on the report, joins CBSN to discuss it.
