Saudi: Bodies of 20 soldiers found on Yemen border

Saudi Arabia's assistant defense minister says the bodies of 20 of the 26 soldiers reported missing have been found on the border, raising the toll for the fight against Yemen's Shiiter rebels to 133.

 

Prince Khaled bin Sultan told reporters Saturday that the bodies were found after "liberating" areas around Dokhan mountain, a strategic high point in the rugged border region. He said six soldiers are still missing. (AP)
