Comments Off on France to evacuate citizens from Libya

France was evacuating its nationals from Libya on Tuesday amid increasing lawlessness and unrest, a government source said, after similar moves by other European nations.

There are less than 100 French nationals in Libya and they will be taken out of the country by ship, the source said, adding that the operation would be over by the afternoon.

Several countries, including Britain, France, Germany and Egypt, at the weekend advised their nationals to leave immediately.
