Britons asked to leave Benghazi
London: UK nationals staying in Benghazi have been urged to leave the Libyan city as soon as possible in view of an imminent threat against westerners.
According to reports, Britain`s Foreign Office has advised against all travel to Benghazi since September.
A statement issued by the Foreign Office said that it is fully aware of a "specific and imminent threat" to westerners in Benghazi, eastern Libya, and urged all British nationals still there to leave immediately.
However, it did not comment on the nature of the threat.
The warning comes a day after US Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton testified to US lawmakers about the handling of the deadly Sept 11 attack on the American mission in Benghazi. The attack killed the US ambassador to Libya and three other Americans.
