Libya's interior minister Omar Al-Sanki issued a decision yesterday banning the entry of Sudanese, Palestinian and Syrian nationals into the country.

Bawabat Al-Wasat news site quoted the Information Office at the Ministry of the Interior as saying: "The decision, which will be valid from now until further notice, will be implemented across all land, sea and air ports."

The office pointed out that "the decision came after the ministry obtained information about participation of some of these nationals in terrorist groups in Benghazi and the cities of western Libya, in acts of violence against the army and the police."
