U.S. tells Americans in Serbia to depart quickly

WASHINGTON -- The State Department strengthened its March 26 travel warning for Serbia-Montenegro, again urging U.S. citizens "to depart the country without delay" because of NATO air strikes in Yugoslavia.

The State Department said that the U.S. Embassy in Serbia-Montenegro, the provinces that constitute Yugoslavia, suspended operations, and as of March 23, all U.S. officials had departed from the country.

Separately, the State Department issued an announcement cautioning against travel to Buea and Limbe, Cameroon, due to seismic activity near Mount Cameroon.

A public announcement was issued for Nepal, where street violence has broken out during campaigning for national elections to be held May 3 to 17.
