U.S. updates Yemen warning

WASHINGTON -- The State Department updated a travel warning for Yemen following the kidnapping of another U.S. citizen in January.

Separately, the department advised U.S. travelers to Tanzania that violent political demonstrations could occur on the islands of Zanzibar and Pemba at least until October elections.

It also advised U.S. travelers to Laos to avoid the Muang Khoune and Paxai districts in Xiangkhoang province, owing to "the risk of ambush by insurgents or bandits."
