USA to close Embassies around the World on Sunday

USA to close Embassies around the World on Sunday  ALeqM5ihu7cvMVskrqt4mW5h7R4ZQwI8QA?size=s3US to close embassies Sunday over security fears: State Dept
(AFP) – 34 minutes ago 

WASHINGTON — The United States said it would close an unspecified number of embassies around the world on Sunday over security concerns.

State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf on Thursday called the step "precautionary" but declined to specify the threat or list which missions would be closed.

"The Department of State has instructed certain US embassies and consulates to remain closed or to suspend operations on Sunday, August 4," Harf told reporters.

The decision was taken "out of an abundance of caution and care for our employees and others who may be visiting our installations," she said.


Harf said that the embassies would be closed specifically on Sunday, with an assessment afterwards on whether to reopen them.

"It is possible we may have additional days of closing as well," she said.

Harf declined to specify from which part of the world the threat was detected.

Government offices are nearly always closed in the United States on Sunday, which is the start of the work week in many Muslim-majority countries.

The United States has been especially cautious about security since an attack on its consulate in Benghazi, Libya on September 11 last year.

The attack killed four Americans, including ambassador Chris Stevens, and led critics in Congress to accuse the State Department of insufficient security.
