Bush: Embassy attack a reminder nation 'at war'

WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Bush says the attack on the U.S. embassy in the capital of Yemen is a reminder that the United States is "at war" with extremists.

Attackers armed with automatic weapons, rocket-propelled grenades and at least one suicide car bomb assaulted the embassy. Sixteen people were killed, including six assailants. No Americans were hurt.

The U.S. says the assault has "the hallmarks of an al-Qaida attack."
