Yemeni security forces arrested three suspected al-Qaida militants from a cell that the US has said was linked to a plot against the American or other embassies, the Interior Ministry said Wednesday. The arrests were the latest move in Yemen's US-backed crackdown on al-Qaida's offshoot here. The US and British embassies closed for two days this week, and other Western embassies took security precautions because of a threats that al-Qaida was planning an imminent attack. The two missions reopened on Tuesday, after the United States said an assault by Yemeni security forces on an al-Qaida cell northeast of the capital a day earlier had "addressed" the threat.
