Ministry: Two more Saudi soldiers killed on Yemen border

Two more Saudi soldiers have been killed on the border with Yemen, the interior ministry said on Friday.

"Two soldiers from the border guards were martyred during an exchange of fire at a border point in Asir region" in Saudi Arabia's southwest, said the ministry's spokesman cited by the official Saudi Press Agency.

The deaths come a day after the ministry announced the first casualty — a soldier shot from across the border in the same area — since the kingdom launched a coalition against Shiite Huthi rebels in Yemen on March 26.
