Latest world newsYemen’s Houthi attack Saudi Arabia’s Capital airport

The Saudi air force shot down the alleged weapon on Saturday, Al Arabiya reports, adding that no damage has been caused.

The missile was destroyed near Riyadh's King Khaled worldwide airport and was said to be of "limited size". Earlier reports said there was an explosion at the airport.

The missile was allegedly aimed at the King Khalid International Airport. Several flights were shown to be delayed on the digital board displaying the arrival and departure of flights at the airport.

Saudi forces have reported shooting down missiles fired by Houthi rebels in Yemen on multiple occasions this year.


The attack, which struck the Sahar district of the vast territory that borders Saudi Arabia, demolished the budget hotel and reduced market stalls outside to a heap of twisted sheet metal.

The intergovernmental organisation has failed to agree a peace deal to end the fighting, which has left more than 8,600 people dead since the coalition entered the conflict.

A Saudi-led coalition has been bombing Houthis and their allies in Yemen since March 2015 in a war that has devastated Yemen and killed thousands of people.

The United Nations has warned Yemen now stands on the brink of starvation.
