UK to unfreeze 600 mln stg of Libyan assets

Britain is releasing a further 600 million pounds' ($944) worth of Libyan assets, a spokesman for Prime Minister David Cameron's office said on Thursday.

"We are unfreezing their assets. They need to do things like pay public sector workers and the police force," the spokesman said in London as Cameron arrived in Tripoli with French President Nicolas Sarkozy for talks.

Britain would help Libya deal with stocks of chemical weapons and mines left over from the Gaddafi era, the spokesman said, adding a formal announcement would be made later on Thursday.
