Inside Britain's burnt out embassy in Tripoli

Foreign missions, including the British embassy, in Libya's capital have been targeted by crowds angry at reports that a Nato air strike had killed a son of Col Muammar Gaddafi.

Foreign Secretary William Hague said the Gaddafi regime had failed in its duty to protect it and that Omar Jelban had been given 24 hours to leave the UK.

The UK currently has no diplomats in the Libyan capital.
