WASHINGTON - The United States has ordered all non-essential diplomats and embassy family members to leave Yemen amid mounting violence between loyalists and opponents of President Ali Abdullah Saleh, the State Department said on Wednesday.

"The security threat level in Yemen is extremely high due to terrorist activities and civil unrest. There is ongoing civil unrest throughout the country and large-scale protests in major cities," the State Department said.

The United States in March told its citizens to avoid traveling to Yemen and said those already there should consider leaving due to deteriorating security.
