The Saudi Arabian capital Riyadh became the scene of an unusual shooting as the security forces stationed near the palace of King Salman bin Abdul Aziz Al Saud opened fire on a tiny toy drone, according to media reports. Later on, the media outlets confirmed that the gunfire was from a drone being shot down.

King Salman was not present in his palace in Riyadh on Saturday when security forces shot down the drone in the area, a senior Saudi official told Reuters.
