Saudi Arabia said on Wednesday it had exchanged an officer detained by Yemeni militia for seven Yemenis it held in areas near the Saudi-Yemeni border.

The statement on state news agency SPA said that the Saudi-led coalition, which launched air strikes against Iran-allied Houthi militia in Yemen a year ago, welcomed a "calm" to heavy clashes on the border which it said could lead to a political solution.
