A Saudi security officer and a Yemeni soldier have been killed in two separate attacks on border posts between the two countries, officials said.

The Interior Ministry said a border security patrol came under fire near the Wadia post in the southern province of Sharura, killing the unit’s chief.

Security forces gave chase, killing three of the attackers, while a fourth was wounded and captured, a ministry spokesman said.

The spokesman said one or two suspects were on the run.

In Yemen, a security source, quoted by AFP, said gunmen attacked a military post on the border, triggering a clash that killed one Yemeni soldier and wounded another.

The assailants used machine guns and rocket-propelled grenades to attack the Yemeni side of the Wadia post, the source said, adding that the gunmen managed to flee.
