Libyan Interior Minister Omar Al-Sinki has imposed a ban on Palestinians, Sudanese and Syrians from entering the country, Libyan media reported on Tuesday.

Al-Sinki cited an intelligence report claiming that a number of nationals from those countries were determined to arrive in Libya and "commit terrorist acts against the army and police in Benghazi and towns in western Libya," The Libya Herald reported. He further added that the ban was indefinite, and will be enforced at airports, seaports and border crossings.
