    The United States is to keep some of its embassies in North Africa and the Middle East closed until the end of the week as a precaution due to a possible al-Qaeda terror threat.

    Yesterday 21 diplomatic posts were shut in response to intelligence or so called "intercepts" gathered from the phones and emails of terrorist suspects.
