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.
