Yemen war: Houthi missile attack on Saudi airport 'injures 26'

At least 26 civilians have been injured in a missile attack by Yemen's rebel Houthi movement on an airport in south-west Saudi Arabia, the military says. Three women and two children were among those hurt when the arrivals hall at Abha airport was hit early on Wednesday, according to a statement. The rebels said they had launched a cruise missile at the facility. Saudi Arabia leads a coalition of Arab states backing Yemen's government in its four-year war with the Houthis. Yemen has been devastated by a conflict that escalated in March 2015, when the rebels seized control of much of the west of the country and forced President Abdrabbuh Mansour Hadi to flee abroad. Alarmed by the rise of a group they believed to be backed militarily by regional Shia power Iran, Saudi Arabia and eight other mostly Sunni Arab states began an air campaign aimed at restoring Mr Hadi's government.
