The view from Libya as Britons urged to leave Benghazi

Britons should leave the Libyan city of Benghazi immediately in response to a "specific, imminent threat" to Westerners, the Foreign Office says.

The British Embassy in Tripoli has been in contact with a "small number" of British nationals whose details it had.

The Foreign Office could not comment more on the threat's nature, but said there was new travel advice for Libya.
