Three embassies reopen in Yemen

The British, French and German embassies in Yemen were reopening Sunday after shutting down in response to terrorism threats, officials said.
U.K. Ambassador Jane Marriott said in a statement Sunday that she and her team were "glad to be back and working in Yemen after this brief hiatus." The German embassy posted a statement on its website Sunday saying it had reopened.
The U.S. closed 19 of its diplomatic missions in the Middle East and Africa after it intercepted a message between al-Qaida chief Ayman al-Zawahri and Yemen\’s al-Qaida offshoot about plans for a major attack. The U.S. has reopened all the posts except its Sanaa embassy.
