France shuts down embasssy in Yemen

French Foreign Ministry announced on Sunday that it shut down its embassy in the Yemeni capital, Sana over security concerns for one day.  

French President Francois Hollande said they decided to shut down the embassy due to "serious threats."

The decision came after the US and the UK decided to close their embassies in Yemen temporarily over intelligence that al-Qaeda and its affiliates are getting prepared to stage attacks in Yemen.
