Saudi Arabia shuts embassy in Libya
Saudi Arabia closed its embassy in Libya and evacuated its diplomats on Monday as the North African country slid further into violence, with the government losing control of a second military airbase to a rogue general
“All the diplomatic staff has left the Libyan capital aboard a private plane due to the security situation through which Libya is passing,” said Ambassador Mohammed Mahmoud al-Ali
The mission will reopen and the diplomats will return “when the situation stabilizes in the Libyan capital,” he added. We are in contact with the Libyan side on all developments.
