Saudi Arabia officer killed in cross-border fire from Yemen

A Saudi army general has been killed in cross-border fire from Yemen, the armed forces announced Sunday, making him the highest-ranking officer to be killed in border attacks since March.

Major General Abdulrahman bin Saad al-Shahrani, commander of the 18th Brigade, was visiting troops deployed "on the front lines along the southern region when the post came under random enemy fire," said the military said in a statement carried by the official SPA news agency. Shahrani was wounded in the attack and hospitalised, it said, adding that he later succumbed to his injuries.

The statement did say when Shahrani was killed.

Earlier, the SPA reported that a Saudi border guard had been killed on Saturday by a rocket fired from Yemeni anti-government rebels that hit a border post in the kingdom's Hazan region.
