RIYADH:  Shelling from Yemeni rebels killed a Saudi border guard and wounded three civilians including a Bangladeshi, the interior ministry said on Friday, reports AFP.
The Tuwal district of Jazan, on the Saudi frontier with Yemen, came under fire on Thursday afternoon, wounding the border guard corporal, a ministry statement said. He died on the way to hospital.
Two Saudis and a Bangladeshi national were wounded by Huthi rebel shelling of Tuwal the same day, the Civil Defence agency said in a separate statement.
More than 100 civilians and Saudi Arabian soldiers have died in strikes and skirmishes along the frontier since a Saudi-led coalition intervened in Yemen on the side of the internationally-recognised government in March last year.
