France urges expatriates to quit Libya amid deadly violence

PARIS, July 27 (Xinhua) -- France on Sunday called on all French nationals to quit Libya "given the deteriorating security situation," the foreign ministry said.

"All our nationals are invited to get in touch as quickly as possible with our embassy in Tripoli," the ministry said in a communique.

Over the last two weeks, the African country plunged into chaos following deadly clashed between Libyan forces and Islamist militants in the capital Tripoli and Benghazi where more than 150 people, most of them civilians, have been killed.

After escalating violence, the United States, the United Nations and Turkey have also pulled their diplomats out of Libya.

Attacks on Westerners become common in Benghazi since former Libya leader Muammar Gaddafi was overthrown in October, 2011, prompting concerns over the security mainly in the Libyan second largest city and in the region.
