More than 100 Britons have arrived in Malta after being evacuated from Libya, where fighting between rival armed factions has spread in the capital.
The British survey ship HMS Enterprise evacuated 110 Britons. The British ambassador to Libya, Michael Aron, said the group included 30 children, 12 infants, four pregnant women and one elderly and sick person.
Britain was one of the last Western countries with an embassy open in Tripoli after the weeks of street fighting forced the United States, the United Nations and European diplomatic staff to leave.
Also on board the Enterprise was a small number of Irish and German people.
