The United States on Saturday evacuated its embassy staff in Libya as they faced a "real risk" from fierce fighting in Tripoli and warned all Americans in the country to leave "immediately".The evacuation came only hours after the Libyan government warned the country could be torn apart by clashes between rival militias for control of Tripoli airport.Memories are still raw for many Americans of the 2012 militant attack on a US mission in eastern Benghazi when the ambassador Chris Stevens and three other American personnel were killed.The attack roiled the US political landscape, and Republicans still accuse the US administration of seeking to cover up the true events of the assault by dozens of armed Islamic militants.
