U.N. Set To Evacuate Foreigners From Libya Capital | The signs out of Libya seem to point toward an endgame of the civil war there. Rebels are advancing on the capital Tripoli and seizing nearby oil facilities, and dictator Muammar Qaddafi is said to be making plans to leave the country for exile. Now, likely in expectation of increased fighting in Tripoli, the United Nations is arranging for the evacuation of thousands of foreigners trapped in the capital. “We are looking at all options available, but it will probably have to be by sea,” said Jemini Pandya, the spokesperson for the U.N.’s International Organization for Migration. The operation is likely to begin within days.
