The United Kingdom is to help bring out 5 000 migrants trapped by fighting in western Libya, the UK’s international development secretary has said.
Andrew Mitchell said funds of £1.5m would pay to charter ships to get people out of the rebel-held town of Misrata and provide medical supplies.
The minister is in New York attending a UN meeting to discuss the humanitarian situation in Libya.
Aid workers and Misrata residents have said the situation there is “dire”.
