US Embassy in Yemen to close to the public

WASHINGTON - The United States is closing its embassy in Yemen to the public until further notice, the embassy said in a statement on Monday amid political turmoil after that nation's government resigned last week under pressure from the Houthi rebel movement.
"The US Embassy will be closed to the public until further notice out of an abundance of caution and care for our employees and others who may be visiting the Embassy. We are continuously analyzing the security conditions and will resume consular operations as soon as our analysis indicates we are able to do so safely," the statement said.
