U.S. Evacuates Personnel from Tunisia and Sudan as Film Unrest Spreads
Democracy Now! SEPTEMBER 17, 2012

The Obama administration has order the evacuation of government personnel from Tunisia and Sudan amidst ongoing unrest throughout Muslim countries over an amateur, U.S.-made anti-Islam film. Global protests continued over the weekend as anger to more than 20 countries after initially kicking off in Egypt and Libya last week. The United States says it is withdrawing diplomatic officials from Sudan and Tunisia as a precaution, not due to any actionable intelligence. The order in Sudan came after the Sudanese government rejected a U.S. effort to deploy a Marine unit to protect the U.S. embassy in Khartoum. The Libyan government says it has made more than 50 arrests in connection with the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi that killed U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three staffers. After pressure from the United States, Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi has also made arrests and cleared protesters from Cairo’s Tahrir Square.
