State Department officials say there are no plans to rescue Americans in Yemen. An official told McClatchy. “Sending in military assets, even for an evacuation operation, could put U.S. citizen lives at greater risk.”
Other countries have rescued their citizens though. India, for instance, was able to move about 5,600 people, including almost a thousand from 41 other nations, out of Yemen. China, Russia and Ethiopia also evacuated their citizens.
