We are extremely concerned about and closely monitoring the growing threat from extremist groups in Libya, including groups affiliated with Daesh. These groups threaten Libya, her regional neighbours and UK interests in the region. We have seen barbaric and appalling acts of terror inside Libya, including the targeting of others because of their faith. Daesh continues to commit appalling atrocities, including, most recently, in Sirte.
