A Bahraini armored personnel vehicle reinforces U.S. Embassy security just outside a gate to the embassy building in Manama, Bahrain, on Sunday. Security forces closed access roads, put up extra blast walls and beef up patrols near some of the 21 U.S. diplomatic missions in the Muslim world that Washington ordered closed for the weekend over a "significant threat'' of an al-Qaida attack.
