The Embassy of the United States in Yemen condemns the bombing of the Iranian ambassador’s residence in Sana’a earlier this morning and expresses its condolences to the families of the victims.

Attacks on diplomatic facilities and against diplomats contravene all international norms and can never be justified or excused. We urge the Yemeni authorities to conduct a thorough investigation and to bring the perpetrators to justice.
