Saudi Arabia

    Saudi Arabia said on Nov. 10 it would continue its offensive against Yemeni rebels unless they retreated well away from its borders, after insurgents said they had seized more territory near the world's largest oil exporter. Saudi Arabia is getting increasingly drawn into a conflict to its south between the Yemeni government and Shi'ite Muslim rebels, which Riyadh fears could weaken the kingdom's stability. "We will not stop the air strikes until they retreat tens of kilometers away from the Saudi border," said Prince Khaled bin Sultan bin Abdul-Aziz, assistant minister for defense and aviation, speaking on Al Arabiya television. Prince Khaled also said the kingdom had fully secured its border against rebel incursions. (Reuters)
