30th March 2011, Comments 0 comments

Britain is expelling five Libyan diplomats, including the country's military attache, due to fears that they could pose a security risk, Foreign Secretary William Hague said Wednesday.

"To underline our grave concern at the regime's behaviour I can announce to the house that we have today taken steps to expel five diplomats at the Libyan embassy in London including the military attache," Hague told parliament.

"The government also judged that were these individuals to remain in Britain they could pose a threat to our security," he said.
