Al-Qa’ida Misses in Attempt to Assassinate British Ambassador

Britain’s Ambassador to Yemen escaped unharmed from an assassination attempt in the capital city of ‘Sana on Monday. A suicide bomber hurled himself onto the armored car in which Torlot was riding and detonated the explosives. The ambassador was unhurt in the blast. Yemeni intelligence officials said afterward that the bomber is believed to have been associated with Al-Qa’ida, which has been gaining strength in Yemen during the past year. The British Foreign Office has warned its nationals in Yemen to “keep a low profile and remain vigilant.”
