Libyan foreign minister Moussa Koussa flees to UK

Libyan Foreign Minister Moussa Koussa is in Britain and "no longer willing" to work for Colonel Muammar Gaddafi's regime, the Foreign Office has said.

He flew in from Tunisia on a non-commercial flight and was questioned for several hours by British officials.

His apparent defection comes as rebels in Libya are retreating from former strongholds along the eastern coast.

The BBC's Daniel Griffiths reports.
