RIYADH: Saudi Arabia says one of its citizens was killed when a house inside the kingdom was struck by fire from neighboring Yemen.

A civil defense spokesman, Ali bin Omair al-Shahrani, said in comments Sunday to the official Saudi Press Agency that the Saudi was killed in the border town of Najran.

Saudi Arabia is leading a coalition that has been pursuing an air campaign inside Yemen since March against Shiite rebels known as Houthis. The Houthis control the capital, Sanaa, and northern parts of the deeply impoverished Arabian Peninsula nation.
