WASHINGTON, Aug. 21 (Xinhua) -- The U.S. embassy in Yemen had reopened after being closed for nearly two weeks due to terrorist attack threats, the State Department said Tuesday.
The embassy would "provide limited public services," State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki said two days after the post was reopened Sunday.
The Yemen embassy was one of 19 U.S. diplomatic missions in the Middle East and Africa closed in response to intelligence that al-Qaida was planning attacks against Western interests.
The other 18 diplomatic missions reopened on Aug. 11, but the Yemen post had remained closed due to ongoing concerns about potential attacks.
Britain and Germany also reopened their embassies in Yemen on Sunday.
