    On February 11, 2015 US closed its embassy in Yemen due to ongoing political instability. Yemen has been in crisis for months, with Houthi fighters besieging the capital Sanaa and then taking control of the state. The U.S. Embassy in Yemen is the third in an Arab country that has closed since the turmoil of the Arab Spring began in December 2010. Whereas the embassy in Yemen was operating with only a small portion of its usual diplomatic staff and had closed to the public for all but emergency services in January 2015.
