U.K.: Imminent threat against Westerners in Benghazi

By The Associated Press

This article was published January 24, 2013 at 7:34 a.m.

— Britain’s Foreign Office is urging U.K. citizens to immediately leave the Libyan city of Benghazi in response to an imminent threat against Westerners.

The Foreign Office has advised against all travel to Benghazi since September.

It said Thursday that it is aware of a “specific and imminent threat” to westerners in Benghazi, eastern Libya, and urged all British citizens still there to leave immediately.

It would not comment on the nature of the threat.

The warning comes a day after U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton testified to U.S. lawmakers about the handling of the deadly Sept. 11 attack on the American mission in Benghazi.

The attack killed the U.S. ambassador to Libya and three other Americans.
