US & UK Pull Out Yemen Embassy Staff After Series of Drone Strikes
As the U.S. and U.K. pull their staff from Yemen, U.S. drones pound the country with missiles, bringing the number of attacks to five within the last two weeks, with at least one of these strikes killing four civilians, according to reports on the ground.
