Libya `on verge of civil war`: Medvedev

Moscow: Libya is on the verge of civil war,
Russian President Dmitry Medvedev said today, in one of the
starkest warnings yet by a world leader over the situation in
the country.

"This is an extreme situation," he told Russia`s
Emergencies Minister Sergei Shoigu, according to state news
agency ITAR-TASS.

"Libya was and is on the verge of civil war and our main
task was to save our people there (Russian citizens)," he
said, praising the operation to evacuate Russians from Libya.

"During such events (such as in Libya) there is usually a
complete disorganisation in the management of the state. And
this is what we are seeing," he added.
