The Prime Minister's spokesman reiterated the "specific imminent threat" to Westerners in Benghazi in Libya, which is why they have been urged to leave.
Although journalists were told there have been regional threats, we were told the Government does not talk about the details behind threats or the information received.
The spokesman would not confirm whether this threat was linked to the situation in Mali or Algeria.
