U.S. Embassy Warns of Yemen Threats, Urges Citizens Leave

The U.S. flew government personnel out of Yemen and urged other Americans to leave immediately after the interception of communications about a planned al-Qaeda attack heightened security concerns.

Britain took action to protect its Yemen-based personnel, too, evacuating its embassy in the capital, Sana’a. While both countries were withdrawing citizens, an air strike in Marib province killed four suspected al-Qaeda members, Yemen’s state-run Saba news agency reported.
