WORLD BRIEFING / SAUDI ARABIA : Border villages are evacuated

November 14, 2009|Times Staff and Wire Reports

About 240 Saudi villages have been evacuated and scores of schools closed because of fighting that has spilled over from Yemen.

Saudi Arabia launched a military offensive last week after Yemeni rebels seized Saudi territory along the mountainous border. The rebels said the Saudis had been allowing Yemeni troops to use the area to launch attacks on their bases.
