PARIS (Reuters) – The ‘E3’ group of European powers – France, the United Kingdom and Germany – said in a joint statement on Monday that they condemned an attack at the weekend on the Saudi capital Riyadh.
The Saudi-led coalition fighting against Yemen’s Houthi movement said on Jan. 23 that it had thwarted an attack by the Houthis towards the Saudi capital Riyadh, the kingdom’s state-owned broadcaster Al-Hadath TV reported on its Twitter page.
Since 2015 the Saudi-led coalition has been fighting the Iran-aligned Houthi movement, which has launched cross-border missile and drone attacks on Saudi cities.
