It is unclear if any damage was caused or if there have been any casualties.

The Saudi Arabian air defense Saturday confirmed it intercepted a missile aimed at a Riyadh airport, according to local reports.

"Travelers across King Khalid worldwide airport in Riyadh, we assure you that the movement is going on as normal and usual, and trips going according to time", the airport tweeted.

The missile was sacked across Saudi Arabia's southern border by Yemen's Houthi rebels, according to several Houthi-owned media outlets, including Al-Masirah and SABA.

Saudi Arabia claims the Shiite Houthi rebels are backed by its regional rival Iran.

Because Puigdemont didn't show up for questioning, the court might issue a European warrant for his arrest. On Tuesday, the Spanish government said Catalonia will have a regional election in December.

More than two years on, the war against Houthi rebels has turned into a quagmire for the kingdom and its Arab allies. Tehran denies the charges and says it only provides political support.

More than 2,100 people in Yemen have been killed since a chlorea outbreak in April as hospitals struggled to secure basical supplies amid a coalition air and sea blockade.

A ballistic missile has been intercepted by air defence forces northeast of the Saudi capital Riyadh, the country's state media is reporting.

The attack, which struck the Sahar district of the vast territory that borders Saudi Arabia, demolished the budget hotel and reduced market stalls outside to a heap of twisted sheet metal.

The UN has warned of starvation and disease, including a cholera outbreak that has claimed more than 2,100 lives in Yemen since April.
