Russia is working to burnish its public relations image by evacuating Americans trapped in the country from Sanaa’s airport after the US State department refused to provide assistance, citing a long-standing travel warning. The flight was so full that some people had to double up on seats. Unsurprisingly there was a Russia Today film crew on hand, who found enough room to capture the moment.
