French embassy in Yemen closed to public
The French embassy in the Yemeni capital Sana'a remained closed to the public on Wednesday but the ambassador and staff reported for duty, DPA reported.
The French Foreign Ministry announced the move Tuesday night, saying: "We decided on the closure as a security measure after threats made public by known terrorist groups."
The embassy was closed Monday, a day after the US and British embassies closed after threats from the local branch of al-Qaeda.
The US and British embassies have since resumed operations, with the British embassy providing limited services.
