U.S. Tightens Embassy Security in Lebanon and Turkey, Warns Americans


The U.S. tightens security at diplomatic missions in Lebanon and Turkey on Friday - because of unspecified threats. In Lebanon, the U.S. State Department ordered all non-emergency diplomatic personnel and their families out of the country - and in southeastern Turkey - a voluntary evacuation at the consulate in Andana has been ordered. U.S. citizens have been warned against traveling to these regions - and Americans in the rest of Turkey have been told to remain vigilant.
