US evacuates Central African Republic embassy
2012-12-30
[BBC.CO.UK] The US says it has evacuated its embassy in the Central African Republic as rebels threaten to advance towards the capital, Bangui.

The state department said it had not broken off diplomatic ties with the government but warned US citizens not to travel to CAR during the unrest.

Earlier, CAR President Francois Bozize appealed to the US and La Belle France to help block the rebel advance.

The UN has said it is evacuating its non-essential staff from the country.

#2  The state department said it had not broken off diplomatic ties with the government but warned US citizens not to travel to CAR during the unrest.

A 'warning' that could have been issued and remained in effect since 1900.
