The US Department of State warned American citizens against all travel to Libya and recommended that those who are currently in Libya depart immediately.
“The U.S. Embassy in Tripoli remains closed, and the security situation in Libya remains unpredictable and unstable. U.S. citizens in Libya should make contingency emergency plans and maintain situational awareness at all times.” The US Dept. of State said on Friday.
It added that recent worldwide terrorism alerts, including the Department of State’s Worldwide Caution, have stated that extremist groups continue to plan terrorist attacks against U.S. interests in the Middle East region, including Libya.
