A British warship that evacuated 110 citizens from Libya has arrived in Malta, bringing the total of evacuees by ship in the last 48 hours to 361.

The HMS Enterprise arrived in Malta on Monday and the evacuated Britons included 30 children and four pregnant women. Libya is seeing its worst violence since the 2011 civil war, which toppled Moammar Gadhafi.

On Saturday, 226 South Koreans, Indians, Filipinos and Bangladeshis landed in Valletta on a vessel chartered by a car manufacturing company for its employees who wanted to leave Libya. With them were 25 Maltese nationals.

British High Commissioner Rob Luke said that some Britons still remained in Libya, and UK authorities are keeping all options open for their evacuation if it becomes necessary.
