Attack on British ambassador in Yemen has al-Qaida hallmarks

(THE GUARDIAN) — Tim Torlot, Britain’s ambassador to Yemen, travels with a UK close protection team as well as a local police escort, so it was not only a matter of luck that he managed to escape the suicide bomber who targeted him in Sana’a today.

No claim of responsibility was immediately forthcoming, but the attack bore the familiar hallmarks of the Yemen-based al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP), one of the most active “franchises” of Osama Bin Laden’s organisation.
