Four Libyan diplomats expelled by US

The United States has expelled four Libyan diplomats and recalled all American diplomats from Tripoli, the State Department said Sunday. The four Libyans were declared persona non grata on Friday and given 72 hours to leave the country for taking part in an intimidation campaign against Libyan exiles. Two other Libyan diplomats were expelled last month. The US cut back its embassy staff in Tripoli to six people last December after the embassy was sacked and burned by a mob.
