Yemen's Houthi fire missile at Saudi Arabia's Riyadh

Loud explosion heard near Riyadh airport

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.

Saudi Arabia's Civil Aviation Authority confirmed on Twitter that the missile had been brought down over the airport.

The missile was sacked across Saudi Arabia's southern border by Yemen's Houthi rebels, according to several Houthi-owned media outlets, including Al-Masirah and SABA.

But the missile was intercepted over northeast Riyadh, the Saudi Ministry of Defense said in a statement carried on government-backed Al-Arabiya television.

The Houthi rebels have seized control of Yemen's capital Sanaa, which has forced the government into exile.


A Saudi military spokesman condemned the attack in a statement, saying the missile was sacked "indiscriminately" toward a populated civilian area.

Earlier this week, a suspected airstrike by the Saudi-led coalition killed at least 29 people, including children, in northern Yemen.

A TV channel linked to Houthi rebels in Yemen said the missile was launched at the airport.

"The Saudi regime can not hide the heavy fires that was seen by thousands of Saudi nationals in the King Khalid Airport premises as result of the Yemeni missile", the official said. Houthi rebels are opposed to the troops of President Abd-rabbu Mansour Hadi, supported by the forces of the Arab coalition led by Saudi Arabia. Saudi cities will be a continuous target.
