UNITED NATIONS - A military intervention by France in Mali to combat Islamist rebels could exacerbate a "precarious" security situation in Libya, where armed groups have targeted security officials and diplomats, the United Nations said on Tuesday.

UN special envoy Tarek Mitri, head of the UN mission in Libya, said that country's government faced a serious security challenge in the east, where the US ambassador and three other Americans were killed in September.

"The opposition of armed radical groups to the military intervention in Mali may exacerbate the situation given ideological and/or ethnic affiliations as well as porous bordering in Libya," Mitri told the UN Security Council.
