US diplomats in hasty Yemen evacuation

0

SANAA: The United States, Britain and France rushed to close their embassies over security fears in Yemen on Wednesday (Thursday in Manila), with US staff destroying top-secret documents and abandoning vehicles at the airport. The hasty exit came as thousands joined rival demonstrations over last week’s Shiite militia takeover, which was widely condemned as a coup. Yemen has descended into chaos since the militia, known as Huthis, seized the capital Sanaa in September and ousted the parliament last week.
