Jan 28 - Yemen is "dismayed" by US President Donald Trump's decision to temporarily ban its citizens from traveling to the United States, saying that the country was a victim of attacks itself, an official said on Saturday.

"We are dismayed by the decision to unilaterally ban, even for only a month, travel to the United States for people holding Yemeni passports," said the official, speaking on condition of anonymity.

Yemen is one of seven Muslim-majority countries affected by Trump's 90-day curb on travelers while his administration studies new ways to prevent potential militants from trying to enter the United States.
