The U.N. Security Council is condemning this week's ballistic missile attack by Houthi Forces in Yemen against Saudi Arabia's capital "in the strongest possible terms."

(AP) -- A statement approved Friday by all 15 council members "also expressed alarm at the stated intention of the Houthis to continue these attacks against Saudi Arabia, as well as to launch additional attacks against other states in the region."

The Saudi-led coalition fighting Yemen's Houthis said it intercepted a missile over Riyadh on Tuesday. The Houthis fired the missile targeting the Yamama Palace in Riyadh, where the Saudi monarch presides at weekly government meetings and receives foreign leaders.

The Security Council called for implementation of an arms embargo on the Houthis and called on the parties in Yemen to start negotiating a political settlement.
