Germany to shut Yemen embassy for two days over security

Germany will close its embassy in Yemen on Sunday and Monday for security reasons, a spokesperson for the foreign ministry said Saturday.


The move followed a similar one regarding Yemen announced by Britain as well as a US decision to temporarily close two dozen embassies in Arab and other countries over fears of an Al-Qaeda attack. "The German embassy in Sanaa will remain closed Sunday and after tomorrow for security reasons," the spokesperson said. (AFP)
