US embassy reopens in Yemen after threat

The United States embassy in Yemen reopened on Tuesday, an embassy official said, a day after Yemeni forces killed two Al Qaeda militants they said were behind a threat that had forced US and European missions to close.

"We are reopened," a US embassy official said. The embassy had closed on Sunday in response to what it said were Al Qaeda threats and came as concern grew about stability in the poorest Arab country.

The British and French embassies resumed operations but remained closed to the public, diplomats at those embassies said.
