British, French Embassies In Yemen Reopen

The British and French embassies in Yemen reopened today after being closed for several days due to threats of a terrorist attack.

The U.S. Embassy was also temporarily closed for the same reason but reopened on January 5 after posting a message on its website that said Yemeni security forces had addressed a "specific area of concern" in the Yemeni capital.

Warnings of a possible Al-Qaeda attack prompted the closures.
