Saudi Arabia says seven killed in rocket attack from Yemen

Four Saudi citizens and three foreign residents of the kingdom have been killed in a cross-border rocket attack by Yemen's Houthi rebels, the official Saudi Press Agency reports.

The attack hit the city of Najran, near the Yemeni border in the south-west of the kingdom, the agency reports, quoting the region's civil defence chief Ali al-Shahrani.

The attack came after the Arab coalition launched an investigation Tuesday following international condemnation of an air raid on Monday that Doctors Without Borders (MSF) said killed 11 people at a hospital it supports.
