Embassies, Consulates to Reopen

Posted: Updated:

WASHINGTON D.C._Eighteen of the nineteen U.S. embassies and consulates that were closed in the Middle East and Africa because of a terrorist threat are set to reopen on Sunday. 


The State Department has not cited a reason for the decision to reopen the embassies except to say they will continue to monitor the threats surrounding the embassy in Yemen, which will remain closed. 

These embassies were all closed last Sunday in light of mounting concerns over terror threats from Al-Queda.
