UPDATE 1-Yemen Houthis say they attacked Saudi capital, coalition dismisses report

(Adds coalition comment)

DUBAI, Aug 26 (Reuters) - Yemen’s Houthi movement said on Monday it had attacked a military target in the Saudi capital Riyadh with armed drones - though the Saudi coalition fighting in Yemen dismissed the report.

Coalition spokesman Colonel Turki al-Malki said the Houthi account was “fake and deceptive”. There was no immediate reaction from authorities in Saudi Arabia. (Reporting By Aziz El Yaakoubi Editing by Andrew Heavens)
