Security officials in Yemen are claiming they've foiled an al Qaeda terror plot. They say the plan called for missiles against foreign embassies in the capital city, Sana'a, along with seizing critical international shipping ports in the Red Sea.
"Many officials say that they did foil a plot to capture oil and gas facilities in southern Yemen, and they believe it might have been part of the larger plot we've all been talking about. But U.S. officials, right now, say they're not so sure," CNN's Barbara Starr reports.
"They point out, rather sensitively, that oil and gas facilities in Yemen often do come under attack, especially by al Qaeda element. Not ready to say yet that this one was connected."
