2008_09_yemen.jpgCNN reports that 10 Yemeni police and civilians were killed when "suspected al Qaeda insurgents disguised as security forces launched an attack on the U.S. Embassy" in Sanaa, the capital of Yemen. According to the NY Times, one car drove up, and "several attackers got out...firing rocket-propelled grenades and automatic rifles" while a second car "drove into the compound’s gate and exploded in what appeared to be a suicide bombing." No U.S. Embassy employees were killed; earlier this year, the State Department ordered the non-emergency staff to depart the embassy but lifted the order last month. Back in 2000, Al Qaeda attacked the U.S.S. Cole, in the Yemeni port of Aden, killing 17 American soldiers.
