UK to Deploy Troops on Libyan Border

British Defense Secretary Liam Fox has announced plans to deploy British troops on the Libyan border with Tunisia.

In a parliamentary session on Wednesday, Fox claimed the British troops will be dispatched to the border to enforce “safe havens” for more than 30,000 civilian refugees fleeing from attacks by Libyan ruler Muammar Gaddafi's troops, the Independent reported.

He also asserted that the troop deployment would be within the terms of a UN resolution authorizing military action in Libya.'
