The terror threat that promoted a worldwide alert now has the State Department evacuating the US Embassy in Yemen.

All Americans in the country are also being told to get out.

The US personnel evacuated from Yemen has been flown to Germany.

The departures follow an overnight US drone attack that killed four suspected Al Qaeda militants in Yemen.

Yemen’s Foreign Minister is criticizing the evacuations saying it serves the foal of the terrorists.

A Pentagon spokesperson says they still have US Marines in Yemen to monitor the situation.
