Around 100 Britons have been evacuated from Libya on a Royal Navy ship, according to the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO).
Among them were staff from the UK embassy that was forced to shut down against a backdrop of deadly fighting between rival militias in the north African state.
An FCO spokesman said: "We have carried out an assisted departure and the vessel is leaving Libya with those on board. The majority of them are British."
The ship which departed from Libya's captial Tripoli, is heading for Malta.
