The US Embassy in Libya warned Monday of "attacks on civil aviation facilities in Libya," and expressed "growing concern that these attacks could have catastrophic consequences," the embassy posted on its Facebook page.

"In my introductory talks with leaders from all sides - without attributing the attacks to anyone - I stressed that the United States sees a high risk of escalating attacks on civilian airports," the new US ambassador to Libya, Richard Norland, was quoted as saying. "If there was a civilian aircraft that was targeted. It would be disastrous."
