Is U.S. Abandoning Americans in Yemen? U.S. Citizen Recounts Harrowing Trip to Escape Saudi Attacks
9 April 2015
A coalition of civil rights organizations is calling on the Obama administration to evacuate U.S. citizens from war-torn Yemen as violence there claims more and more lives. In mid-February, the U.S. government closed its embassies in Yemen and evacuated its personnel. Last month, Yemen’s airports all but shut down amidst heavy fighting, making it nearly impossible to leave the Gulf state.
But critics say the Obama administration has effectively told American citizens to fend for themselves. The U.S. State Department‘s website states: “There are no plans for a U.S. government-coordinated evacuation of U.S. citizens at this time. We encourage all U.S. citizens to shelter in a secure location until they are able to depart safely.”
The U.S. refusal to evacuate its citizens comes despite its support for the Saudi-led bombing campaign against Houthi rebels in Yemen. The United States has vowed to ramp up weapons deliveries to members of the Saudi-led coalition, and agreed to perform aerial refueling of bombers. Meanwhile, governments of several countries including Russia, India, and even Somalia have sent ships to rescue their citizens. We are joined by Mokhtar Alkhanshali, a Yemeni American who has just managed to escape Yemen after being stranded there since December 2014.

Coalition kills 20 Indians on boat
YEMEN: Two boats carrying 20 Indian crew members were bombarded by aircraft while sailing between Somalia and Yemen, India’s Foreign Ministry said yesterday.
A day earlier the Yemeni coastguard had reported that the Saudi-led coalition fighting Yemen’s Shi’ite rebels had bombed more than five boats off the coast.
Foreign Ministry spokesman Vikas Swarup said that 13 crew members were alive and seven missing.
