Saudi Arabian border guard killed by shell fired from Yemen

RIYADH- Authorities say a Saudi border guard has been killed by a shell fired from Yemen, where Saudi Arabia is battling Shiite rebels.


Maj. Gen. Mansour al-Turki said in a statement Friday that the attack happened Thursday in Saudi Arabia's Jazan province, which borders Yemen. Al-Turki blamed Yemen's Shiite rebels, known as Houthis, for launching the attack.


Cross-border fire has killed security agents and civilians since a Saudi-led coalition launched a campaign in Yemen in March 2015.
