Saudi Arabian authorities say one person has been killed and two others wounded in a ballistic missile attack on the kingdom's capital by Yemen's Shiite rebels.

The death was reported early Monday by the state-run Saudi Press Agency, which quoted a civil defense official in Riyadh.

Saudi Arabia's military earlier said it intercepted seven ballistic missiles fired by Yemen's Shiite rebels known as Houthis late Sunday.

The missile attack came on the third anniversary of the start of the Saudi-led war in Yemen.


2:50 a.m.

Saudi state media are reporting that the kingdom's armed forces have intercepted a ballistic missile over Riyadh fired by Shiite rebels in Yemen.

State television aired a segment early Monday saying the missile was shot down over the Saudi capital. The Saudi-owned Al Arabiya satellite news channel aired footage that it says shows Patriot missile batteries firing at the ballistic missile.

Al-Masirah, a satellite news channel run by Yemen's Shiite rebels called Houthis, says Houthi rocket forces targeted King Khalid International Airport in Riyadh and other targets in Saudi Arabia.

The ballistic missile attack comes on the third anniversary of the launch of a Saudi-led war on the Houthis and their allies, who hold Yemen's capital, Sanaa.
