US Embassy attacked in Yemen

I did not get to this yesterday, but this was really big news. The US was very lucky that none of our embassy workers were killed. This has Al Qaeda written all over it. Yemen and Al Qaeda do share a history, and Yemen is a country that has a lot of people who sympathize with it. Gunmen dressed in camouflage uniforms drove up and began firing rifles and rocket-propelled grenades at a checkpoint outside the heavily fortified United States Embassy compound, and detonated two car bomb. Ten people were killed before six of the attackers were killed.
