CAIRO (Reuters) - The Saudi-led coalition intercepted and destroyed two explosive-laden drones launched towards Saudi Arabia by Yemen's Iran-aligned Houthis, Saudi state TV reported early on Thursday.

Yemen has been locked in conflict since 2014 when the Houthis seized Sanaa, the capital, and then much of the country's north. Fighting escalated in March 2015 when the Saudi-led coalition intervened to restore the government of President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi.
