WASHINGTON -- The State Department renewed its existing travel
warnings for Macedonia and Yemen, cautioning U.S. citizens to defer
travel to those countries.
The State Department said the "situation in Macedonia is
potentially dangerous as a result of armed attacks by ethnic
Albanian extremists in the northwest of the country, most recently
in the village of Aracinovo near Skopje."
For Yemen, the State Department said it "believes there is an
increased terrorist threat to U.S. citizens and interests."
The U.S. embassy in Sanaa, Yemen, suspended services to the
public on June 9.
On Oct. 12, 2000, several American citizens were killed and many
more were injured in a terrorist attack on a U.S. Navy ship in port
in Aden, Yemen.
