What is going in the world? U.S. Embassy evacuation in Sudan amid violence

In the midst of ongoing violence in Sudan, the U.S. military has successfully evacuated American employees from their embassy in Khartoum, the White House announced late Saturday night.

On Sunday morning, the diplomats stayed in Djibouti for about 30 minutes before departing for Ramstein Air Force Base in Germany at 2:30 a.m. According to CBS News' David Martin, the diplomats arrived in Germany about 30 minutes earlier. According to State Department principal deputy spokesperson Vedant Patel, Secretary of State Antony Blinken monitored evacuation efforts from the State Department.


President Biden confirmed that the U.S. was "temporarily suspending operations" at the embassy following the evacuation.
In his remarks, Mr. Biden acknowledged that he ordered the extraction operation and was "grateful for the unmatched skill of our service members who successfully brought" the U.S. diplomatic workers "to safety."

Additionally, the State Department confirmed the Embassy's temporary closure, adding that "the U.S. government cannot provide routine or emergency consular services to U.S. citizens in Sudan, due to the current security situation."

In a statement, Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin called the evacuation a "successful operation," and thanked "our allies and partners, along with Djibouti, Ethiopia, and Saudi Arabia."

In a State Department and Pentagon briefing overnight, officers stated that over one hundred U.S. troops, all extraordinary operations forces, had evacuated. Fewer than a hundred human beings have been evacuated from the embassy, including Marines who had been connected to the embassy and some overseas diplomatic specialists who had been there. Troops had been on the floor for much less than an hour in what used to be described as a "fast and clean" operation. U.S. forces no longer take any small fingers furnace heading in or out of Khartoum, U.S. officers said.
