Saudi air defences intercept two missiles over Riyadh: state TV

Riyadh (AFP) – Saudi Arabia’s air defences intercepted two ballistic missiles over the capital Riyadh on Wednesday, state television Al-Ekhbariya said.

Two explosions were heard in the city, according to an AFP photographer. 

The Huthi rebels in neighbouring Yemen have in recent months intensified missile attacks against Saudi Arabia, which leads a military coalition against them. Riyadh has long accused Tehran of supplying the Huthis with ballistic missiles.
