Newsline: UK embassy an al-Qaeda target

The British embassy in Sanaa was the target of an al-Qaeda suicide plot foiled by Yemeni authorities last week. An al-Qaeda cell dismantled in Arhab, 35km north of the capital, last week was aimed at infiltrating and blowing up targets, including the British embassy, foreign interests and government buildings. The attack on the British embassy was to be modelled on the operation that was carried out against the American embassy in 2008, which killed 16 people.
