RIYADH: Saudi Arabia said it intercepted a Scud missile fired on its territory by rebel forces in neighboring Yemen early Saturday as momentum gathers for peace talks in Switzerland next weekend. “The Royal Saudi Air Defence Forces intercepted it with a Patriot missile,” said a statement from the Saudi-led coalition which has been waging an air war against the rebels since March 26. The missile was fired from south of the Huthi rebel bastion of Saada in Yemen’s northern mountains, it added.
