WASHINGTON - The State Department on Tuesday told US citizens in Libya to leave the country immediately, warning that the security situation remained "unpredictable and unstable."

"The Department of State warns US citizens against all travel to Libya and recommends that US citizens currently in Libya depart immediately," the State Department said in a new travel warning.

The last travel warning for Libya issued on December 12 strongly advised against all but essential travel to Tripoli and against traveling outside the capital.
