The British Embassy in the Yemeni capital of Sanaa will reopen on Sunday after being closed for 12 days because of security concerns.

"British Embassy #Yemen open as normal from Sunday 18 August. Apologies for the brief hiatus," British Ambassador Jane Marriott tweeted.

The Foreign Office said on August 6 it had withdrawn all staff from the embassy due to a high threat of kidnapping.
