Quit Benghazi advice is overreaction
[Libya Herald] The Undersecretary at the Ministry of the Interior, Abdullah Mansour Zwai has condemned the call by Western embassies for their nationals to evacuate Benghazi as "an over-reaction".
Mansour insisted that the security problems in the city did not warrant this response. He also said that the Libyan Foreign Office had not been told formally by the British government of the change in travel advice issued today.
The British embassy told Libya Herald this evening: "We don't feel it is an over-reaction. The safety and security of British nationals is our priority." As yet the British government had not received any official reaction from the Libyan government.
