There will also be 50 places made available in UK specialist hospitals for critically ill Libyans, while assets totalling £500m ($790m) will be returned to the interim authorities as soon as possible.

The British prime minister also promised £600,000 from the UK towards de-mining efforts in Libya and £60,000 to pay for a police communications system.

He told a news conference in Tripoli that Britain and France want "to help you diplomatically, militarily, economically and with your development".
