Yemen’s Houthis say fired ballistic missile toward Saudi capital
DUBAI (Reuters) – Yemen’s armed Houthi movement said on Friday it had fired a ballistic missile toward the Saudi capital Riyadh, just ahead of U.S. President Donald Trump’s visit to Saudi Arabia, but the claim could not immediately be confirmed.
The Iran-allied Houthis launched a Burkan-1 missile, a statement by their official news agency said. It said the missile was aimed at Riyadh but gave no further detail.
Reuters could not confirm the report and Saudi officials could not be reached immediately for a comment. Riyadh on Saturday will be the first stop on Trump’s first foreign trip since taking office in January. He is expected to conclude important security and trade deals there with Saudi officials.
