Britain Expels Libyan Diplomats

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

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

Hague also confirmed that a diplomatic mission has been launched by a number of British politicians. The group that have met the head of the revolutionary Libyan National Council is going to visit the eastern part of Libya Benghazi.

At Prime Minister's Questions today, David Cameron said the UN resolutions "would not necessarily rule out the provision of assistance to those protecting civilians in certain circumstances."

"The legal position is clear that the arms embargo applies to the whole territory of Libya. But at the same time UNSCR 1973 allows all necessary measures to protect civilians and civilian-populated areas... We do not rule it out but we have not taken the decision to do so," Cameron said.

Hague went on to say that his country is studying Col. Muammar Gaddafi's moving to exile to solve the unrest in Libya.

He said on Tuesday that Britain would prefer to find the embattled Libyan leader at the International Criminal Court, stressing that Gaddafi's exile brings a change that "most of the world and probably most of the Libyan people want to see."

The members of the international community met in London over the current situation in Libya as the United Nations has backed the military action upon the country. London hopes that the presence of Arab countries would help empower the military action upon Libya.
