The State Department has evacuated most of its diplomats from Lahore, Pakistan, in response to a terrorist threat against the U.S. consulate there, senior State Department and other senior U.S. officials told CNN.

Except for a handful of emergency personnel, the diplomats were moved to Islamabad, the Pakistan capital, officials said.

It was unclear whether the threat to the consulate was related to a current threat against U.S. facilities and personnel that prompted the U.S. to close diplomatic posts throughout the Middle East, Asia and Africa.
