Saudi Arabia says it intercepted Houthi missile that hurt 2


DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) — Saudi Arabia says it has intercepted a ballistic missile fired by Yemen’s Houthi rebels, which sent debris crashing down over a neighborhood near Dammam that wounded at least two children. Images published Sunday by the state-run Saudi Press Agency showed glass and debris across a townhouse there, which is in the kingdom’s eastern reaches and near the headquarters of the state-run oil giant Saudi Aramco. A Saudi military spokesman said the Houthis launched three bomb-laden drones and three ballistic missiles. A Houthi military spokesman said the rebels launched a military operation deep in Saudi Arabia did not offer further details in a tweet.
