Yemeni rebel attack on southern Saudi Arabia kills 2 people


DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) — Saudi Arabia says a Yemeni rebel attack on the southern border town of Jizan has killed two people and wounded seven. The statement published by the official Saudi Press Agency late on Friday said Yemen’s Houthi rebels launched a projectile that killed a Saudi citizen and a Yemeni resident of the kingdom. Six of the wounded are reported to be Saudis and one is a Bangladeshi national. The cross-border attack is the latest in Yemen’s long-running civil war by the Shiite Houthis following a series of Saudi-led coalition airstrikes on the Yemeni rebel-held capital of Sanaa.
