Yemen is notorious for being the base of many terrorist groups. Over the years, there have been cases of American citizens being abducted by terrorists. Extremist groups like Al-Qaida have also been known to exist in the country. The existence of these groups has made it difficult for Yemen’s economy to grow, leading to a shortage of food and difficulty offering medical assistance. Insecurity is an issue that has been a cause for concern for many countries across the world today. Nonetheless, some countries are still relatively safe. If you are going to travel, be sure to take every necessary safety precaution to protect yourself.
