With battles raging in Libya and many foreign embassies bringing home their people, Greece has decided to also evacuate all personnel from its embassy in Tripoli, officials said.

With rival militias engaged in firefights and even attacking the international airport, Greece dispatched a navy frigate to take out all its officials and workers.

The ministry decided to send the ship as Tripoli airport is the scene of gun battles and driving to Tunisia was deemed too dangerous. It is expected that the embassy staff will board the frigate on July 31. Some 80 Greeks who also live in Libya have been informed that they can board the vessel as well.

Other countries, such as China, have also requested that the Greek vessel help its citizens leave Libya. Hundreds of Chinese workers have already been evacuated from the war-torn country.
