ABC News reports that “with the worsening security situation in Yemen’s capital of Sanaa, the U.S. military has moved two Navy amphibious ships into the Red Sea to assist with any potential evacuation of U.S. embassy personnel should the State Department order its personnel to leave the country, Pentagon officials said today.”  

“The U.S. embassy there remains open as of now.”  

“A State Department spokesperson told ABC News that officials are ‘continuing to closely monitor developments in Yemen and will adjust the embassy’s security posture response in accordance to the situation on the ground.'”
