U.S. State Department Orders Non-Essential Diplomats From Yemen

The U.S. State Department yesterday ordered non-essential diplomats to leave Yemen as security deteriorated in the capital of Sana’a and President Ali Abdullah Saleh continued to cling to power.

The department also ordered family members of American government employees to leave and urged private citizens to do so as well, citing “violent clashes” that “may escalate without notice” in Sana’a.
