UN staff evacuated from Yemen capital: aid workers

SANAA: At least 200 UN staff and other expatriates were evacuated from the Yemeni capital on Saturday, as an Arab coalition pressed a bombing campaign against Shiite rebels in the city, aid workers said.

“More than 200 staff of the United Nations and foreign embassies and firms left through Sanaa airport on Saturday afternoon,” one aid worker told AFP, without specifying their destination.
