NON-EMERGENCY U-S PERSONNEL ORDERED TO LEAVE U-S EMBASSY IN IRAQ

In a security alert on their website early this morning, the State Department has ordered all non-emergency personnel at the U-S Embassy and Consulate in Iraq to exit the country because of rising tensions between the United States and Iran.

American officials reported last week that “credible threats” from Iran against U-S citizens were detected. An advisement against traveling to the region followed.
