The international Red Cross said that improvements in the security situation has allowed its team to return to Libyan rebel stronghold Benghazi on Friday.

"Two days after its temporary relocation to the city of Tobruk in eastern Libya, a four-member team from the International Committee of the Red Cross returned to Benghazi today to resume its humanitarian work," said the relief agency in a statement.

"The improved security situation made it possible for us to return to Benghazi today," added Simon Brooks, the ICRC's head of mission in Libya.
