European Union evacuates Libya staff to Tunisia
Brussels: The European Union said on Thursday that it had moved its staff in Libya to Tunisia in light of the deteriorating security situation.
They would return to Tripoli "as soon as conditions allow," a spokesman for the EU`s external affairs arm said.
The EU again called for an end to the violence in Libya, where fighting between rival militias for control of key installations has claimed scores of lives in the past two weeks.
"We appeal to all sides to demonstrate willingness to compromise and hope that all parties will agree to enter into an inclusive political dialogue," spokesman Michael Mann said.
The United States, Canada, France, Spain and Brazil have closed their embassies in Tripoli while several Western countries and Egypt have advised their nationals to leave.
About a dozen EU staff are involved in the decision, sources said.
