(MENAFN) Saudi civil defense said one person has died and two others were injured in a ballistic missile attack late Sunday over the capital of Riyadh fired from Yemen by Houthis militias.

According to the spokesman of Riyadh civil defense, the missile's shrapnel that fell on a residential house in Riyadh led to the death of one person and injury of two others, all from Egypt.

Saudi state television said Yemen's Houthis fired two missiles toward Saudi late Sunday and Saudi air defense succeeded in intercepting one over Riyadh, and another over Jazan in the Saudi border with Yemen.
