An Iraqi source confirmed on Saturday that the embassies of several foreign countries may follow the step of Washington, and evacuate non-emergency staff from Iraq.


US has ordered the non-official staff of its embassy in Baghdad to return home on May 15, while Germany and Netherlands withdrew their troops from the country amid rising tensions between regional powers - between US and Gulf countries on one side, and Iran on the other side.
