CAIRO - Saudi Arabia shot down a Scud missile fired into the kingdom by Yemen's dominant Houthi group and its army allies on Saturday, according to the Saudi state news agency.

"At 2:45 on Saturday morning, the Houthi militias and ousted (president) Ali Abdullah Saleh launched a Scud missile in the direction of Khamees al-Mushait, and praise be to God, the Royal Saudi air defenses blocked it with a Patriot missile," a statement by the leadership of the Saudi-led joint Arab military coalition said.
