The Saudi-led coalition has closed off land, sea and air routes with Yemen after a rebel-fired ballistic missile targeted Riyadh.

In a statement, the coalition said closures would be temporary and take into account the work of humanitarian and aid organizations.

The coalition threatened Iran with a possible retaliatory strike.

There was no immediate response from Iran, though Iran's defense minister, Gen. Amir Hatami, earlier denied his country was involved in the launch.
