WASHINGTON - Family members and non-essential US staff have been ordered to leave the US embassies in Tunis and Khartoum because of security concerns following a wave of anti-American protests, the US State Department said on Saturday.

"Given the security situation in Tunis and Khartoum, the State Department has ordered the departure of all family members and non-emergency personnel from both posts, and issued parallel travel warnings to American citizens," State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland said in a statement.
