Missiles from Yemeni rebels hit Saudi capital

Saudi forces say they have shot down seven missiles launched into Saudi territory by Houthi rebels in Yemen.

Three of the missiles were fired at the capital, Riyadh, and one person was killed when fragments landed in a suburb.

Sunday saw the third anniversary of the Saudi-led coalition’s intervention in Yemen’s civil war.

Houthi rebels said they had been aiming at a number of locations, including Riyadh’s international airport.

The coalition accused Iran of supplying the Houthis with the missiles, a claim denied by Tehran.

Saudi state news agency SPA said missiles had also been fired at the southern cities of Najran, Jizan and Khamis Mushait
