RIYADH : Shells fired from Yemen killed five people in Saudi Arabia on Wednesday in a second day of cross-border bombing blamed on Huthi rebels, civil defence authorities said.

Two civilians in a car and two passers-by were killed by a shell in the city of Najran, while 11 others were wounded, the civil defence department said in a statement carried by the SPA state news agency.

A prison security officer was also killed and another wounded when a second shell landed on their patrol in the same area, the statement said.
