A large blast and heavy gunfire have hit an area near the US Embassy in the Yemeni capital Sana’a, officials say.

On Monday, Yemeni Security officials said a large explosion, followed by heavy gunfire, has been heard near the embassy building. The officials further noted that the gunfire took place around a kilometer (0.6 miles) west of the US mission in Sana’a.

It is still not clear if anyone has been killed or injured. No group has claimed responsibility for the blast and gunfire.

The US and several Western countries closed their embassies in Yemen in August after Washington warned of an al-Qaeda attack.

Yemenis have repeatedly staged demonstrations and accused Washington of interfering in the internal affairs of their country.

Update: There are reports denying an explosion and gunfire at the American embassy in Yemen.
