Missile fired from Yemen intercepted by Saudi Arabia north-east of capital

Yemen army thwarts Houthi attacks in Taiz, kills 40

Yemen's Houthi rebels have claimed responsibility for an explosion in Riyadh, saying they fired a long-range ballistic missile that travelled 500km over the border with Saudi Arabia.

MISSILES have been fired at a major Middle Eastern airport used by thousands of Brits every year, it has been reported.

Saudi forces this year have reportedly shot down several missiles from the Yemeni rebels on multiple occasion and is now leading a military campaign against them.

State news channel Al-Ekhbariya said the missile was "of limited size" and no damage was caused.

Saudi military officials blamed the Houthi rebel forces in Yemen, Al Arabiya reported, adding that it proved the "involvement of one of the countries of the region sponsoring terrorism".

A long-range ballistic missile was sacked at King Khalid International Airport in Riyadh, the Houthi TV channel Al-Masirah reported. Yemen is 500 or 600 miles south of Riyadh.

Saudi Arabia's southern neighbour Yemen has been torn apart by a war between the Saudi-backed government of President Abedrabbo Mansour Hadi and Houthi rebels.

At least 40 Houthi rebels were killed in clashes with government forces in the southwestern province of Taiz, the Yemeni army said Saturday.

Some, including the authors of a United Nations report, have accused the Saudis of causing devastation and the deaths of thousands, as a result of their involvement in the war.
