They were found in a hospital in Reedah, in Amran, he said. The US embassy, which had closed for two days due to security concerns over an Al-Qaeda threat against foreign interests, cited ‘successful’ security operations north of the capital as it reopened for business on Tuesday. The British and French embassies, which also closed their doors, resumed operations on Wednesday.”
