Another diplomatic outpost is evacuated
PAKISTAN (NEWSCHANNEL 3) A terror threat has now led to the evacuation of another U.S. diplomatic outpost in Pakistan.
The State Department ordered all non-essential government employees to leave the U.S. Consulate in Lahore.
It's also warning all Americans not to travel to that country.
Officials say this evacuation is due to a specific threat to the consulate in Lahore and not related to the ongoing terror threat from al-Qaida that has forced other U.S. embassies and consulates to close.
President Obama is expected to talk about this new terror alert Friday.
