BENGHAZI, Libya, Jan. 24 (UPI) -- British nationals have been urged to leave the Libyan city of Benghazi over a threat, the Foreign Office said.

Britain's Foreign Office has been advising against travel to Benghazi and most parts of Libya since September, when U.S. ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans died during an attack on the consulate in Benghazi, the BBC reported.

Britons have been advised to leave Benghazi immediately "in response to a specific threat to Westerners," the Foreign Office said, adding that it could not comment further on the nature of the threat.
