A suspected suicide bomber has attacked the convoy of the British ambassador to Yemen.

The ambassador, Tim Torlot, is unhurt and reports say the bomber is the only person to have died in the blast.

No embassy staff were injured in the attack.

It happened just outside the Yemeni capital of Sanaa as the British envoy was on his way to the embassy early this morning.

The UK Foreign Office said it was looking into the matter.

The US and UK shut their embassies in Yemen in January amid fears of an imminent al-Qaeda attack.
