A coalition led by Saudi Arabia have closed all ground, air and sea access to Yemen following a rocket attack on Riyadh, claim reports. The missile attack, thought to have been launched by Houthi fighters, was manufactured by Iran, Saudi Arabia claimed. They said the attack was a “clear act of aggression” by Iran and “could rise to be considered an act of war”. In a statement, Saudi Arabia accused Iran of

supplying the missile to Houthi rebels. The kingdom said the closures would be temporary and take into account the work of humanitarian organizations. Iran has denied arming the Houthi militants and suggested that the ballistic missile was locally produced. More than 10,000 people have died and more are threatened with famine as war rages between a Saudi-led coalition and Shiite rebels. MORE
