LONDON - Britain will close its embassy in Yemen on Sunday and Monday driven by "increased security concerns" as a precautionary measure, media reports quoted foreign officials as saying on Friday.

The Foreign Office said it has withdrawed a number of staff from Yemen and advised British natinals against all travel there as security situation was particularly concerned in the final days of Ramadan.
