Missile fired by Houthi militiamen intercepted over Riyadh


The Saudi-led coalition battling Yemen's Houthi militiamen says it has intercepted a ballistic missile near Riyadh, Saudi-owned Al Arabiya TV says.

Witnesses in the Saudi capital said they had heard an explosion and posted videos on social media showing a cloud of smoke in the air.

The Houthi movement's al-Masirah TV reported that its recruits had fired a Burkan-2 missile at the Yamama Palace.

Last month, a similar missile came close to hitting Riyadh's airport.
