Yemen's Houthis fire missile at military base in southern Saudi Arabia

A dispute over troops stationed in Socotra has been resolved.

Military transport planes from the United Arab Emirates landed on the sleepy Yemeni island of Socotra last week, unloading tanks and troops as part of the Gulf Arab state´s drive to extend its influence over a strategic waterway flanked by war zones.

Yemen's armed Houthi movement launched a ballistic missile at a Saudi Aramco facility in Saudi Arabia's southwestern Jizan province on Monday, the group's al-Masirah TV reported, but a Saudi-led coalition said the rocket fell in the open desert.

Police said on Monday that the driver, who suffered a broken ankle, said she had been using Autopilot before the crash. Musk originally said that Tesla was restructuring in the company's first-quarter earnings call earlier this month.


Turki al-Malki, a spokesman for a Saudi-led coalition cobbled together in 2015 to fight the Houthis, condemned the attack, which he said had targeted a civilian area "in clear violation of worldwide law".

The Yemeni prime minister went on to hail the Saudi mediation to ease tension over Socotra Island and UAE support against Houthi rebels.

The move was undertaken in co-ordination with the Yemeni government, the coalition said.

The only glitch for Mercedes was when Sebastian Vettel managed to slipstream past Bottas for second place into turn 1. Carlos Sainz ( Renault ) and Fernando Alonso (McLaren) secured seventh and eighth places respectively.


The Foreign Ministry responded by reiterating the UAE's support for the internationally recognised government of President Abdrabu Mansur Hadi and said it was seeking "to establish peace and stability and to support developmental projects for the island's residents".

Socotra had been spared involvement in the Yemeni conflict, which has claimed almost 10,000 lives since March 2015 and triggered what the United Nations has called the world's worst humanitarian crisis.
