Pregnant Brooklyn woman among Americans trapped in Yemen

Written By kom nampuldu on Selasa, 14 April 2015 | 18.18

A pregnant Brooklyn woman is among at least 400 American citizens trapped in Yemen amid a US-backed bombing campaign.

The 24-year-old woman, identified only as Saffa, is holed up with her new husband, their two kittens and two huskies, according to ABC News.

They have tried in vain to get information to help them return home, but have been stalled by misinformation and bad phone lines.

"It's been a big mess," Saffa told ABC. "And I'm sorry, it's really ­f–ked up."

Saffa's sister Amber wrote the State Department from Brooklyn and sent an urgent letter to the agency's Yemen-emergency e-mail address.

She received a reply three days later that said, "We have no way to assist with their evacuation."

The Council on America-Islamic Relations and the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee have filed a lawsuit against the State Department and Department of Defense for failing to evacuate its citizens.

Air India has evacuated hundreds of people to Djibouti, about 470 miles away across the Gulf of Aden.
