Two loud booms heard in Saudi capital Riyadh – witnesses

The kingdom had intercepted a hostile air target aimed at the city on Saturday

Two loud booms were heard in the Saudi capital, Riyadh, witnesses said, days after the kingdom said it had intercepted a hostile air target aimed at the city.

No further details about Tuesday’s incident were immediately available.
