Saudi Arabia's King Salman ordered the transfer of $2 billion to Yemen Wednesday, one day after Yemen's Saudi-backed prime minister made an urgent appeal to the kingdom and its allies to save the local currency from "complete collapse".For nearly three years, an Arab-led coalition backed by the United States has been carrying out airstrikes in Yemen against Iranian-allied rebels, known as Houthis, after the rebels overran the capital of Sanaa and forced Yemen's government into exile.Last year, the Saudi and internationally backed Yemeni government created an alternative central bank from the one in the rebel-held Sanaa, moving it to the southern port city of Aden.Saudi Arabia also said Wednesday it had intercepted a fresh missile attack by Houthi rebels on the south of the kingdom and renewed its accusations that Iran had armed them.
