Iran dismissed as "irresponsible and provocative" accusations from regional arch-rival Saudi Arabia on Monday that it was responsible for a weekend missile attack on Riyadh launched from war-ravaged Yemen.

An Iranian foreign ministry statement quoted its spokesman Bahram Ghassemi as saying the accusations by the Saudi-led coalition were "unjust, irresponsible, destructive and provocative".

Saudi forces intercepted and destroyed the ballistic missile launched on Saturday from Yemen, where the kingdom leads a coalition in support of the recognised government against Iran-backed Shiite Huthi rebels.
