As Turkey evacuates more foreigners from Libya, NATO warns civilians of bombing campaign
Turkey yesterday evacuated 1,356 foreigners from Libya's Misrata, where two photographers were killed, as NATO warned civilians to stand clear of its bombing blitz on Libyan leader Muammar Gadhafi's troops, and Libyan rebels called for "major" airstrikes. "The ferry Ankara left Misrata for Benghazi today," carrying citizens from Egypt, Sudan, Libya, Tunisia, Nigeria, Jordan, Syria, Malta, Chad, Algeria, Palestine and Morocco, Foreign Ministry spokesman Selcuk Unal told reporters. "A ferry organized by the Turkish Red Crescent will arrive in Misrata on Saturday or Sunday. We'll continue to help the Libyan people," he added.
