CAIRO, June 17 (Reuters) - Yemen's Houthi movement launched a new drone attack targeting the Abha regional airport in southern Saudi Arabia, the group's Al-Masirah TV said on Monday.

There was no immediate Saudi confirmation of the attack.

The Houthis have launched several strikes targeting Abha since last week, when a missile attack on the airport wounded 26 people. On Saturday, the group said it launched drone attacks on Abha and Jizan, another airport in southern Saudi Arabia.
