Following the September 17 terrorist attack on the U.S. Embassy in Sana'a, the Department of State has authorized the departure of non-essential American personnel and dependents for a period of 30 days, which may be extended, depending on circumstances. I've lost count how many times this post has been on authorized departure in the last few years alone. U.S. Embassy employees have also been advised to exercise caution when choosing restaurants, hotels or visiting tourist areas in Sana'a in order to avoid large gatherings of foreigners and expatriates. In addition, unofficial travel outside of the capital city has been curtailed at this time.Below is a brief clip on the aftermath of the terrorist attack.
