BILL HEMMER, CNN ANCHOR: CNN has confirmed apparently news out of Washington that all non-essential diplomats and their family members in Pakistan are asked to leave the country immediately. This in the wake of that attack last Sunday, a grenade attack in a church in Islamabad and the diplomatic center of Islamabad. Five people killed, including two Americans. In fact, the surviving family members met with President Bush yesterday before he set off on his four-day swing, first through Texas and now in Mexico.

But the word again that CNN has right now: All non-essential diplomats and their families and family members asked to leave Pakistan right away. We'll track that, let you know what more we get from the state department and elsewhere.
