Riyadh responds to unauthorised drone flying over city


The security forces then "dealt with it according to their orders and instructions in this regard", said the SPA, as they shot down the drone after social media showed gunfire in the neighborhood where Saudi King Salman's home is located. The statement came after footage was circulated online that included the apparent sound of gunfire in the Saudi capital.

"Saudi authorities have launched an investigation into the incident", added SPA.

Police in the Saudi capital Riyadh have responded to an unauthorised drone flying over the city Saturday evening.

Saudi activists on the social media also called into question the Saudi government's story, saying that no toy drone was involved as there are no video footages showing the downing of the toy drone.

No casualties were reported in the incident, a senior Saudi official told Reuters, noting King Salman was not present in the palace at the time.
