The Saudi-led coalition battling Yemen's Houthi rebel group to support the internationally-recognized government of Abdrabou Mansour Hadi said it was investigating drone attacks against Saudi oil plants on Saturday that were claimed by the Houthis, and would confront "terrorist" threats to global energy security.

"Investigations are ongoing to determine the parties responsible for planning and executing these terrorist attacks," coalition spokesman Colonel Turki al-Malki said in an English-language statement.

He said the Saudi-led military alliance would take the necessary measures to "safeguard national assets, international energy security and ensure stability of world economy”.
