Saudi-led coalition denies targeting a market in Yemen

Saudi air defence forces were quoted by broadcaster Al-Arabiya as saying they intercepted the missile north-east of the capital.

Saudi Arabia has hit and destroyed a "ballistic missile" northeast from its capital Riyadh after it was launched from Yemen.

"And then we have a claim from Houthi rebels in Yemen that they fired a long-range missile at Riyadh and the Saudi air defence forces saying it has intercepted a long distance missile that it believes was sacked from Yemen".

Passengers at the airport, which British Airways flies direct to from the United Kingdom, said they heard an explosion.

According to videos published on social media, smoke could be seen rising near Riyadh's King Khalid International Airport.

Saudi state-owned channel Al Ekhbariya TV said the missile was brought down north of King Khaled airport, and no casualties were reported.

"We have the right to respond and bombard with missiles those perpetrating daily massacres against our people, the latest being the massacre in a market".

The Saudis, who back Yemen's internationally recognised government, accuse the Houthis of starting the war.

The armed conflict in Yemen continues with March 2014.

A cholera outbreak has claimed more than 2,100 lives in Yemen since April as hospitals struggle to secure supplies amid a coalition air and sea blockade.
