Saudi-led coalition says intercepted missiles, drones headed towards kingdom - SPA

DUBAI (Reuters) - A Saudi-led coalition fighting in Yemen said it had intercepted and destroyed a number of ballistic missiles and explosive drones launched towards the kingdom on Thursday.

In a statement published on Saudi state news agency SPA, a spokesman for the coalition said the Iran-aligned Houthi group in Yemen had launched the objects at civilian targets in Saudi Arabia, without giving more details.
