Riyadh — Rocket fire from Yemen killed two civilians at a mosque during Friday prayers in a Saudi border community, the Saudi-led coalition said on Friday.

“They fired one missile, Katyusha, in... Najran at the time of Friday prayer,” Brigadier General Ahmed al-Assiri, the coalition spokesman, told AFP.

A mosque was hit “and they killed two civilians.”

At least 39 people, civilians and troops, have lost their lives in shelling and border skirmishes since March 26, when the coalition began bombing Iranian-backed Houthi rebels in Yemen.
