US Warns against Travel to Yemen

Sunday, 06 Mar 2011 07:08 AM

 

WASHINGTON (AP) — The State Department is advising Americans not to travel to Yemen and says U.S. citizens currently in the country should consider leaving.

In a travel warning issued early Sunday, the department also said it has authorized family members of U.S. Embassy staff and non-essential personnel to leave.

The advisory cited terrorism and civil unrest in the troubled Mideast nation and said that in the event of a crisis evacuation options would be severely limited.

The State Department says the threat level in Yemen, where demonstrators are calling on the country's besieged president to leave office, is "extremely high."
