Tripoli - British Prime Minister David Cameron flew into the Libyan capital on Thursday for a previously unannounced visit, an AFP photographer in Tripoli reported.

Cameron, whose visit comes only a few days after Britain warned of threats to its embassy in Tripoli, arrived at Tripoli airport at 11:00 am (1000 GMT), amid tight security.

His office said on Twitter that the British premier travelled to the North Africa country “to discuss how the UK can continue to help build a strong, prosperous, democratic” Libya. - Sapa-AFP
