State Department Orders Nonessential Diplomats out of Yemen

May 25, 2011
The State Department on Wednesday ordered nonessential diplomats out of Yemen and urged all Americans to leave as well, the Associated Press is reporting.  
Security in Yemen continues to deteriorate as the country is teetering on the verge of a civil war as fighting between loyalists and opponents of Yemen President Ali Abdullah Saleh raged for a third day. At least 41 dead and dozens have been injured, according to the AP.

"The security threat level in Yemen is extremely high due to terrorist activities and civil unrest," the State Department said in its advisory. "There is ongoing civil unrest throughout the country and large-scale protests in major cities," while adding that clashes in the capital, Sanaa "may escalate without notice."

From London on Wednesday, President Obama called on Saleh to "move immediately" to implement an agreement negotiated with other Middle Eastern countries for Saleh to give up power, which Saleh has refused to do three times after making verbal commitments to step down, according to the AP.
