Members of the defence team have been sent to Libya to evacuate South Africans there.

The flight left yesterday night and is expected to come back later today.

The South African humanitarian relief organisation Gift of the Givers is also expected to send an advance team to Libya soon.

Head of Gift of the Givers, Imtiaaz Suleiman, has called on volunteer medical personnel to contact the organisation if they wish to be involved in helping the people of Libya.

Up to forty South Africans are trapped in anti-government protests in Libya.

Meanwhile Tom Wheeler, from the Institute for International Affairs says there is little the government can do to intervene in the declining situation in Libya.
