SAN'A, Yemen -- Yemen has warned Western ambassadors of new information indicating potential terror attacks targeting foreign interests in the country, a security official said Monday.

He did not comment on the nature of the threat.

In the capital, security was beefed up around embassies and foreign businesses, with extra armored cars patrolling the streets.
