Turkey Evacuates Citizens from Libya

Turkey has been evacuating hundreds of citizens from Libya after a threat from a renegade general fighting Islamists in the east, Ankara's embassy and airport officials told Reuters on Tuesday.

The move comes after retired general Khalifa Haftar on Sunday called on Turks and Qataris to leave anarchic eastern Libya within two days, accusing both their countries of supporting "terrorism."
