THE GULF WAR: The Battle Front : Embassy Reopening
The U.S. EMBASSY IN KUWAIT CITY should be back in business within the next few days, the State Department said. Spokeswoman Margaret Tutwiler said that Ambassador Edward W. Gnehm Jr., at left, will reopen the embassy. It was closed Dec. 13 when the last foreign diplomats left Kuwait, including ex-ambassador W. Nathaniel Howell III. Gnehm was sworn in last month, but worked in Saudi Arabia.
