The United States on Thursday urged U.S. citizens to leave Syria immediately, saying the government's violent crackdown on peaceful protests had led to an uncertain and volatile situation.

"The U.S. Department of State urges U.S. citizens in Syria to depart immediately while commercial transportation is available," the department said in a warning notice, adding future plans by U.S. citizens to travel to Syria should be deferred.

The State Department had ordered eligible family members of U.S. government employees and certain non-emergency embassy personnel to leave Syria in April.

There are a lot of US citizens who have family in Syria. Most of the arab population in metro Detroit are of Syrian or Lebanese descent. There are also probably american missionaries and teachers working in Syria, too.
