U.S. Extends Embassy Closures

An intercepted message among senior al-Qaida operatives suggesting a possible threat forced more than 20 U.S. embassies to close on Sunday, reported AP. Nineteen of those diplomatic posts in the Mideast and Africa will remain closed for the rest of the week. The United States also issued travel warnings to Americans abroad.
