Omani Embassy in Sana'a closes over terrorist threats

By Fatik al-Rodaini
SANA'A, May 13, 2012- Omani Embassy in Sana'a shut its mission and withdrew its staff from Sana'a over terrorist threats.
According to diplomat and security officials in Sana'a Omani Embassy was closed on Saturday and diplomats in Sana'a left Yemen after receiving terrorist threats.
The sources did not specify the nature of these threats but they said that "most diplomatic missions in Sana'a have received threats," including the embassies of Gulf States and those of the five permanent members of the UN Security Council.
These countries have played a major role in convincing Yemen's former President Ali Abdullah Saleh to cede power he held for nearly three decades by brokering a UN-backed deal he agreed to sign last year.
