The US State Department urges travelers not to go to Yemen because of terrorist activities and civil unrest.

Protests continue in Yemen against the government of President Ali Abdullah Saleh, who returned to Yemen from Saudi Arabia on Sept. 23 after recuperating from wounds sustained in a June 3 bomb attack on his presidential compound.

In the capital, Sana’a, there have been periodic gun battles between the loyalist troops and the military who have vowed to protect the protesters. Loyalist troops continue to fire upon protest marches, with scores killed, and the government forces continue to shell other cities around the country.
