Saudi Arabia says it has intercepted ballistic missiles over its capital, Riyadh, and a city along the Yemen border. Multiple explosions shook Riyadh in the attack. At least two civilians were reportedly injured. A Saudi-led military coalition blamed the attack on Yemen’s Iran-aligned Houthi rebels who have targeted Saudi cities in the past. The capital is now under a 15-hour curfew to help curb the coronavirus. The kingdom has over 1,000 COVID-19 infections and four deaths so far.
