The State Department said that it was extending the closing of 19 diplomatic posts in the Middle East and North Africa for the week because of continued fears of an attack by operatives of Al Qaeda and their associates. Dozens of diplomatic missions were closed over the weekend because of what American officials called ?credible? information about possible attacks.
