Saudi citizen killed in shelling fired from Yemen



A Saudi citizen was killed in shelling fired across the border from Yemen into the south-west of Saudi Arabia on Sunday, the official SPA news agency reported.

A shell fell on a house around dawn in Najran province, Ali bin Omair Al Shahran, a civil defence department spokesman, said.

SPA did not say who carried out the shelling, but Houthi rebels and forces loyal to former Yemeni president Ali Abdullah Saleh have carried out similar attacks since the conflict erupted in Yemen four months ago.

A Saudi-led Arab alliance launched a military campaign on March 26 to end Houthi control over much of Yemen and to return President Abdrabu Mansour Hadi from exile.

Ukraine exports

President Volodymyr Zelenskyy has overseen grain being loaded for export onto a Turkish ship following a deal with Russia brokered by the UN and Turkey.
"The first vessel, the first ship is being loaded since the beginning of the war. This is a Turkish vessel," Zelensky said, adding exports could start in "the coming days" under the plan aimed at getting millions of tonnes of Ukrainian grain stranded by Russia's naval blockade to world markets.
"Our side is fully prepared," he said. "We sent all the signals to our partners -- the UN and Turkey, and our military guarantees the security situation."

Aayan’s records

Youngest UAE men’s cricketer
When he debuted against Bangladesh aged 16 years and 314 days, he became the youngest ever to play for the men’s senior team. He broke the record set by his World Cup squad-mate, Alishan Sharafu, of 17 years and 44 days.

Youngest wicket-taker
After taking the wicket of Bangladesh’s Litton Das on debut in Dubai, Aayan became the youngest male cricketer to take a wicket against a Full Member nation in a T20 international.

Youngest in T20 World Cup history?
Aayan does not turn 17 until November 15 – which is two days after the T20 World Cup final at the MCG. If he does play in the competition, he will be its youngest ever player. Pakistan’s Mohammed Amir, who was 17 years and 55 days when he played in 2009, currently holds the record.
