Saudi-led coalition forces intercepted and downed a Houthi drone launched toward the kingdom from Yemen, state TV and state news agency quoted coalition spokesman Turki al-Maliki as saying early on Tuesday.

The drone was downed in the Yemeni airspace while Houthi's AL MASIRAH TV did not announce any attacks on Tuesday.
