WASHINGTON - The United States has evacuated its remaining personnel, including about 100 special operations forces, from Yemen because of the deteriorating security situation there, US officials said on Saturday.

The US pullout, which came as the UN Security Council prepared to meet on Sunday on a request from embattled Yemeni President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi for an "urgent intervention," marked a further setback in US counterterrorism efforts against a powerful al-Qaida branch in the country.
