RIYADH - A Yemeni rebel missile attack on an airport in southwestern Saudi Arabia wounded 26 civilians on Wednesday, the Saudi-led coalition fighting the Iran-backed Houthi rebels said.

Eight of those wounded at Abha airport were admitted to hospital, coalition spokesman Turki al-Malki said in a statement carried by the official Saudi Press Agency. The other 18 were discharged after receiving first aid.

The Houthi rebels said earlier that they had launched a missile at the airport in the Saudi mountain resort city of Abha.
