Moscow: Russia says it has evacuated all of its diplomats and their families from Libya a day after a mob attack on the Russian Embassy there.






Russia said none of the embassy staff was hurt in Wednesday's attack, which came in response to the death of a Libyan air force officer, who was allegedly killed by a Russian woman.

Russian Foreign Ministry spokesman Alexander Lukashevich said in a statement that it decided to evacuate after Libya's foreign minister told the Russian ambassador that Libya was unable to protect the embassy.

Lukashevich added that all the embassy workers and their families safely crossed the border into Tunisia Thursday.
