Jeddah, Saudi Arabia (Reuters) - Saudi Arabia’s air defence force has intercepted two Iranian-made Houthi missiles in Mecca province, a statement from the kingdom’s embassy in Washington said on Monday.

Yemen’s Iran-aligned Houthis - fighting a Saudi-led coalition in that country - earlier denied Saudi media reports of an attack.
