The U.S. State Department on Friday moved to reduce its diplomatic presence at its consulate general in Adana, Turkey, due to security threats, it said in a statement.

“The Consulate General in Adana has been authorized to drawdown its non-emergency staff and family members because of threats against U.S. government facilities and personnel,” the department said.

It also recommended “that U.S. citizens defer non-essential travel to southeastern Turkey,” the statement said.
