Two people were killed in Saudi Arabia in a projectile attack blamed on Yemen's Huthi rebels, while three died in Yemen in a Riyadh-led coalition airstrike, officials said Saturday.

Saudi's civil defence said that two people, including a Saudi citizen and Yemeni national, were killed and seven were injured in a projectile attack on Jazan, a southern region of Saudi Arabia bordering Yemen.

Meanwhile, medics in Yemen said that three people died and six others were injured in Saudi-led coalition airstrikes northwest of the rebel-held capital Sanaa.
