Saudi Arabia: Missile Intercepted Near International Airport

Saudi Arabia on Saturday intercepted a ballistic missile fired at the international airport northeast of Riyadh, its state media said.

The statement came after reports that a loud explosion had been heard in the area.

Unconfirmed reports said the missile came from Yemen, where Saudi Arabia is leading a military alliance against the armed Houthi movement.

The Houthis, who control much of the country, reportedly claimed the attack.
