SAN'A, Yemen — A mortar round exploded near a British diplomatic motorcade not far from its embassy in the Yemini capital of San'a, a Yemeni security official said Wednesday.

The official said that at least three bystanders were wounded in the blast but he did not know of any British casualties. He spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to the press.

The British embassy could not be immediately reached for comment.

The blast came two days after Yemeni authorities boosted security in the capital around embassies on information of an attack planned by Al-Qaida.

The local affiliate of the terror group targeted the British ambassador's motorcade in April.
