Difficult to reach Libya Swedes

The Swedish foreign ministry plans to get Swedes out of Libya on Friday on an Italian plane - but the ministry says it is "very hard" to get hold of Swedish citizens in the country.

Foreign Ministry spokesman Joakim Larsson says to Swedish Radio News that communications are down, but that the ministry is trying to tell Swedes to get to the airport.

According to the ministry there are 50 Swedes in Libya. A handful will leave on the Italian plane, and 20 want to stay behind.
