Britain on Saturday advised its nationals against all travel to Yemen, due to increasing levels of deadly violence.

"In light of the increasing violence in Yemen, we advise against all travel to Yemen," the Foreign Office said in a statement.

"We recommend that all British nationals in country without a pressing need to remain should leave by the commercial options currently available.

"You should also be aware of the threat of terrorism, kidnapping and tribal violence."

According to human rights group Amnesty International, at least 27 people have been killed since protests against the government of President Ali Abdallah Saleh started on January 27.
