Only the embassy in Sanaa Yemen will stay closed over continued concerns of a terror strike. The Obama administration will reopen 18 other facilities throughout North Africa and the Middle East on Sunday. In a separate incident, the US pulled most personnel from its consulate in Lahore, Pakistan, yesterday; that consulate will stay closed for now.
