As the Libyan unrest spreads, its ripple effects were felt across the country’s diplomatic missions all over the world. Libyan ambassador to India Ali al-Essawi has resigned to protest his government’s crackdown on demonstrators calling for ouster of Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi.

Union external affairs minister SM Krishna on Sunday spoke to Indian envoys in Libya and Yemen to ascertain the ground situation, and MEA evaluates that the protests are spreading, and issued advisory against Indian nations taking up “no essential travel” to these two countries.

Ali al-Essawi apprised the division concerned about his decision to quit.
