    US AND UK pull staff out of Yemen due to terror alert.

    BBC News - US and UK pull staff out of Yemen amid terror alert


    Seems like this threat is getting more credible by the day and there is genuine worry that an attack in this region could be imminent. Hopefully by taking these precautions they may deter such attacks or at the least limit the casualties.

    Wonder what they heard from the intercepted communications that made them think this, at least they caught the plot before It was enacted.

    Better wait and see as to what AQAP does if anything. Though even the Tripoli embassy has been shut so AQIM could be up to something. They may have been deterred but you never know.
