Saudi-led coalition intercepts armed Houthi drone attack

 The Saudi-led military coalition engaged in Yemen said it had intercepted and destroyed an armed drone on Sunday launched by the Iran-aligned Houthi movement towards southern Saudi Arabia.
The bomb-laden unmanned aerial vehicle aimed to target "civilians and civilian objects," coalition spokesman Colonel Turki al-Malki said in a statement carried on Saudi state media.
The coalition intervened in Yemen in March 2015 against the Houthis after the group ousted the Saudi-backed government from power in the capital Sanaa, in a conflict widely seen in the region as a proxy war between Saudi Arabia and Iran.
