Libya ‘expels’ UN refugee agency UNHCR

The United Nations refugee agency says it has been ordered to leave Libya.

A spokeswoman for the UNHCR says it received a note from the Libyan authorities telling it to close its office.

“We have not been given any reason by Libyan authorities for why we should leave the country,” said Melissa Fleming.

Thousands of migrants from sub-Saharan Africa pass through Libya on their way to Europe each year.
