RIYADH: Saudi Arabia said a ballistic missile intercepted over Riyadh Tuesday was "Iranian-Huthi", days after Washington accused Tehran of manufacturing a missile fired by the Yemeni rebels at the Saudi capital last month.

"Coalition forces confirm intercepting an Iranian-Huthi missile," the Center for International Communication, an arm of the Saudi information ministry, said on Twitter, adding that no casualties were reported.
