A guard was killed in Saudi Arabia by a explosion on the border with Yemen, the Saudi state news agency SPA said on Friday, quoting an interior ministry spokesman.

The spokesman said that a water delivery truck was carrying a bomb when it went off on Thursday evening at the border in the southern province of Jazan near the Yemen, killing Corporal Abdullah Farhan Jaber al-Maliki.

Saudi Arabia has reported dozens of its soldiers or civilians killed in the 20-month-old conflict in Yemen by Houthi militia attacks.
