British navy evacuates nationals from Libya

Smoke billows from a petrol depot set ablaze following clashes between rival militias near the airport in the Libyan capital Tripoli on August 2, 2014A British navy ship evacuated British nationals from Libya on Sunday, the defence ministry said, as worsening security there is forcing thousands to flee. The HMS Enterprise, which had been on a Mediterranean deployment, evacuated 110 people, mostly British, from the capital Tripoli, ambassador to Libya Michael Aron wrote on Twitter. Sunday’s operation resembles one conducted in 2011 during the bloody uprising that ousted the dictator Moamer Kadhafi, when a Royal Navy ship evacuated foreigners. Libya has suffered chronic insecurity since Kadhafi’s overthrow, with the new government unable to check militias that helped to remove him and facing a growing threat from Islamist groups.
