The Senate approved President Donald Trump's nomination of Matthew Toller as US ambassador to Baghdad.
Toller was the US ambassador to Yemen for five years, before leaving office a few days ago to prepare for his new post, at a time of increasing tension between the United States and Iran.
The US State Department asked its "non-essential" staff at its embassy in Baghdad to leave Iraq, asserting that the US government has limited capacity to provide emergency services for US citizens in Iraq.
