Death toll in Yemen US embassy attack rises to 19
SAN'A, Yemen: Yemen's Interior Ministry says two people wounded in Wednesday's attack on the U.S. embassy in San'a have died in the hospital, bringing the total number of those killed to 19.
The ministry in its Sunday statement says the two were civilians without giving further details.
Wednesday's attack on the gate of the U.S. Embassy by gunmen and vehicles packed with explosives initially killed 17 people, including an 18-year-old American woman and six militants. None of those killed or wounded were U.S. diplomats or embassy employees.
It was the deadliest assault on a U.S. Embassy in a decade and the closest extremists have come to penetrating the grounds of the low-slung building in several attempts.
Police arrested 25 suspects.
