SSB to guard Indian mission in Tripoli
A contingent from the Sashastra Seema Bal, which guards the India-Nepal border, would be sent to violence-hit Libya to ensure security at the Indian embassy in Tripoli, Home Minister Sushilkumar Shinde said. About 50 SSB personnel are likely to be sent for the task, following a request from the External Affairs Ministry, which was concerned about the safety of the embassy and other Indian installations in Libya. Recently, US ambassador Chris Stevens was killed in an attack on the US consulate in Benghazi.
