Saudi Arabia says it intercepts missile above Riyadh: Al Arabiya TV

RIYADH (Reuters) - Saudi Arabia’s air defense forces intercepted a missile above the capital Riyadh, Saudi-owned broadcaster Al Arabiya said on Wednesday after several loud booms were heard in the city center.

In recent months, the Houthi armed movement in neighboring Yemen, where Saudi Arabia is participating in a three-year-old military campaign, have targeted Riyadh several times with missiles.
