Gunmen have opened fire at a checkpoint outside the US embassy in Yemen's capital, Sanaa, Yemeni officials say.
Initial reports suggest no-one was hurt in the attack, apparently carried out by gunmen in a car.
Hours earlier, the US embassy said it had received a threat about a potential attack in "the foreseeable future".
US officials urged American nationals to exercise caution in the Arab country that has previouly witnessed attacks by militants on Western interests.
