Britain, Germany and the Netherlands urged their citizens to immediately leave the eastern Libyan city of Benghazi on Thursday in response to what they called an imminent threat against Westerners.
European officials told The Associated Press that schools were among the potential targets.
The warnings came a day after U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton testified to Congress about the Sept. 11 attack on the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi that killed four Americans, including the U.S. ambassador to Libya. The warnings also came as French troops battled al-Qaida-linked militants in the West African nation of Mali, and followed the deaths of dozens of foreigners taken hostage by Islamist extremists in Algeria.
It remained, however, unclear if those two events were linked to the latest concerns about Libya.
The foreign ministries of the three European countries issued statements describing the threat as specific and imminent but none would elaborate.
The U.S. Embassy in Tripoli, Libya's capital far to the west of Benghazi, noted the Europeans' warnings but said there was "no specific information pointing to specific, imminent threats against U.S. citizens."

WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES IT MAKE?
Just because people died? Hillary shall not be bothered......
Nixon lied, nobody died- removed from office.
Benghazi, many died, Hillary and Obama lied, no problem?
Even if Western media sources are blind to the connection between the 2011 Libyan War (which Sarkozi and Obama began in defense of al Qaida-class terror cells and their enablers in Benghazi against Qaddafi) and the arming of the West’s enemies in Mali, the Berber and Arab Sunnis can see it.
Maybe we should try what we're doing with the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt and offer to give them free US fighter jets... /s
