Americans evacuated out of Pakistan

WASHINGTON (AP) - The U.S. is evacuating nonessential personnel from Pakistan and it's warning Americans not to travel there.

U.S. officials say domestic and foreign terror groups are a threat to Americans in Pakistan.

Officials say the Pakistan evacuation is not related to the al-Qaida threat that resulted in the temporary closing of U.S. missions in 16 countries.
