Clinton says Yemen situation is global threat

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said on Monday that the situation in Yemen was a threat to both regional and global stability.

“We see global implications from the war in Yemen and the ongoing efforts by al Qaeda in Yemen to use it as a base for terrorist attacks far beyond the region,” Clinton said after a meeting with the visiting prime minister of Qatar.

Clinton said a decision on reopening the U.S. embassy in Yemen -- shut for two days due to what it described as al Qaeda threats -- would be taken “as conditions permit”.
