Britain is sending military officers to Libya to help rebels organise themselves, improve their communications and logistics, Foreign Secretary William Hague said Tuesday.

Hague said the government had agreed to send an "additional military liaison advisory team" to the British diplomatic team already in the eastern city of Benghazi, where the rebels fighting Moamer Kadhafi's regime are based.

"This contingent will be drawn from experienced British military officers," Hague said in a statement.
