Washington, DC — Excerpt from the United States Department of State daily press briefing:
QUESTION: Can I ask on Libya?
MS. NULAND: I'm looking at Jill and --
QUESTION: There was - following the spate of warnings that came out of Britain and other European capitals yesterday about specific threats in Libya, just as we were coming down there was another threat - specific threats against British and Western interests in Tripoli. I wondered if that was anything that you were hearing on the American side, and if so, could you comment on it?
MS. NULAND: Well, we spoke on Friday to our updated warnings to Americans with regard to Benghazi and other parts of Libya. I think you know that we're still in reduced staffing at our mission in Tripoli and have taken a series of very significant measures to ensure that our Embassy there remains secure.
QUESTION: But you haven't heard anything specifically today, obviously --
MS. NULAND: I don't have anything new to share with you other than what we've been saying all the way through.
QUESTION: Yeah, the Chinese are seeking U.S. help on a number of their human right activists who are here in the U.S. They say they are fugitives and they want them back. Have you received any request on the number of those peoples, those Chinese who are living in the U.S. and the Chinese want them back?
MS. NULAND: I don't have anything on that, Lalit. Why don't you give us a little bit more specific information afterwards and I'll see if there's anything I can share.
All right? Thanks, everybody.
