The Czech Republic temporarily closed its embassy in Libya on Thursday, the Foreign Ministry announced. The army’s general staff said the military had evacuated ten employees from the Czech diplomatic mission. The Czechs were joined by 11 employees from the Swiss embassy. All 21 arrived aboard a CASA C-295 M at the Prague-Kbely airport on Thursday night. The Foreign Ministry has recommended that Czechs do not travel to Libya under current circumstances. There has been increased fighting in Tripoli with the country facing the most serious upheaval since Muammar Gaddafi’s regime was toppled in 2011.
