LONDON — Britain's foreign secretary said that a UK warship is being redeployed off the coast of Libya for possible help in evacuating Britons from the country.

William Hague said that the frigate HMS Cumberland would be stationed in international waters off the Libyan coast in readiness for a possible sea-borne evacuation of British citizens stuck in the anarchic north African country.

Hague said Tuesday that his government was seeking to send a charter flight to Libya to help British citizens leave but that it had yet to receive the necessary permission to land from Libyan authorities.
