Turkey urges citizens to leave Yemen amid political crisis

Turkey has urged its citizens to leave Yemen due to the worsening security situation, despite a tentative deal among the country’s rival factions battling for power. The Turkish Foreign Ministry published the warning – the third of its kind since August – late on Thursday, after most Yemeni factions had agreed to set up an interim presidential council to run the country for up to a year. That deal aims to ease the power struggle in a country where the president resigned last month after Shi’ite Houthi rebels overran the capital Sanaa in September.
