WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The U.S. Embassy in the Yemeni capital Sanaa suspended some services on Monday after the Yemeni government passed on information suggesting an increased terrorist threat, the State Department said.
In response to the increased threat, the embassy is taking a number of additional security measures, including suspending temporarily the immigrant visa and routine American citizens services to the public, beginning on Monday, State Department spokesman Richard Boucher told a daily briefing.
