Hillary Clinton says Yemen is a 'top concern'


France has become the third Western nation to shut its Yemen embassy, in response to a perceived increase in the security threat from al-Qaeda.

The US and UK embassies, which closed on Sunday, remain closed.

Speaking after a meeting with the visiting prime minister of Qatar, US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said stability in Yemen is a top priority for the US.
