LONDON (AP) — The Netherlands is urging its citizens to leave the eastern Libyan city of Benghazi in response to what is described as an imminent threat against Westerners.
Britain issued a similar warning Thursday.
Dutch Foreign Ministry spokesman Thijs van Son says the ministry is upgrading its travel warning for Benghazi. He says the Dutch "have reason to believe there is a serious threat coming up" but declined to elaborate.
Van Son says there are four Dutch citizens registered as being in Benghazi and possibly two more.
