Saudi intercepts Yemen rebel missile as camp toll rises

Riyadh - 

A Yemeni rebel missile was intercepted over Saudi Arabia late on Friday, a Saudi-led coalition said, as the death toll from a rebel attack on a Yemeni army camp rose to 32. 

The rebels’ Saba news agency said the missile was aimed at offices of Saudi oil giant Aramco in the town of Jizan.

The coalition, which has been fighting the rebels for the past two years, said the missile was intercepted without casualties.

The Yemeni army said the toll from Friday’s rebel rocket attack on its camp in Marib province, east of the capital Sanaa, had risen to 32 dead and 81 wounded.

Marib province lies on the border with Saudi Arabia and most of it has been retaken by government forces.
