LONDON (AP) - Britain's Foreign Office says it is aware of reports about a potential threat against the U.K. embassy in Tripoli, the capital of Libya.

The reports come less than a week after the British government joined Germany, the Netherlands and Canada in urging their citizens in the eastern Libyan city of Benghazi to evacuate in response to what was described as an imminent threat to Westerners.

The Foreign Office said Monday it is working closely with the Libyan government in response to reports of a potential threat against its embassy in Tripoli.

Britain has not changed its travel advice, which recommends against all but essential travel to Tripoli.
