PARIS (Reuters) - France's foreign minister on Sunday said that a ballistic missile strike by Yemeni Houthi rebels targeting Saudi Arabia's capital Riyadh showed that there was a danger of wider ballistic proliferation across the region.

"France strongly condemns the ballistic missile strike claimed by Houthi rebels," Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian said in a statement. "It highlights once again the danger ballistic proliferation poses to the entire region."
