SHAFAQNA – According to ABC news reported that ”  400 Americans still in Yemen, according to the Council on America-Islamic Relations (CAIR), an Arab American group who along with the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee have filed lawsuits against the U.S. State Department and Department of Defense for failing to evacuate its citizens.” The report added ” The State Department has said repeatedly that it gave ample warning to U.S. citizens in Yemen. In Friday’s State Department briefing, Deputy Spokesperson Jeff Rathke told reporters: “We are unfortunately in a situation where access to Yemen is extremely difficult, and to do so with U.S. government assets could put other lives at risk and so we are doing the best with the circumstances as they exist.””
