Tuesday, an explosion was heard in Saudi Arabia's capital of Riyadh at around 12:52 PM (Arabian Standard Time), according to Reuters.

All planes to Riyadh's King Khalid International Airport were diverted to other airports. 

Social media users shared videos of a ballistic missile interception above the capital. 

On Jan. 23, Saudi Arabia intercepted an apparent missile or drone attack over the capital. No group has taken responsibility for the attack. 

This is a developing story.
