A car bomb exploded at the US embassy in Yemen this morning. AP reports:

A car bomb targeting the U.S. Embassy hit the front gate of the compound in Yemen’s capital on Wednesday, causing unspecified casualties, a U.S. spokesman said.

Ryan Gliha, the embassy spokesman, told The Associated Press by telephone that there was a second explosion that followed the initial one, but did not know what caused it.

A Yemeni security official said the embassy was hit by two car bombs and that heavy gunfire lasting around 10 minutes followed the blasts.

Several nearby homes were badly damaged by the blasts, he said, but had no information on whether the heavily guarded embassy sustained damage too. He said three of the embassy’s guards were wounded, but he did not know their nationalities.

Sky News is saying the attackers were dressed as soldiers, and notes that the Yemeni branch of the Islamic Jihad had made threats just three days ago.

Reuters notes that the U.S. Embassy says no Americans were among the wounded.
