David Cameron, the Prime Minister of Britain, is at present in Libya and has offered to help out the police and the army in Libya by deputing his people in the fields of investigation.

This has been reported in news.sky.com of dated 31st of January 2013.

He walked around in the famous Martyr's Square of Libya and interacted with the common man - of course, he was surrounded by his bodyguards and with helicopter kept circling overhead.

He had also toured a police training center on the outskirts of Tripoli.

It seems the PM has indicated his willingness to provide training and advice to Libyans in view of the escalating concerns involving its security preparedness in the region.

It may be recalled that he has already agreed to send 330 British troops to Mali to augment the French forces who are fighting the al-Qaeda militants in Mali in spite of apprehensions in some quarters that such involvement could lead to creating another Vietnam-like environment.

Obviously, Britain wants to increase its presence in matters relating to Arab countries and militants linked to the al-Qaeda.

British police teams from Dumfries and Galloway Police would be arriving in Libya in March-2013 to conduct investigations regarding the 1988 Lockerbie bombings – it would be the first time that the police would be allowed in Libya to conduct the probe.

That was the worst terrorist attack on Britain – a Pan Am flight 103 exploded over Lockerbie on 21/12/1988 and all 259 people on board died apart from 11 persons on the ground.

Prime Minister David Cameron has expressed his appreciation to Libya for granting the permission – he had last come to Libya and Benghazi in September-2011 after Col Muammar Gaddafi had lost his power.

During his current visit, he has plans to meet Prime Minister Ali Zeidan and President Mohmmed Magariaf in order to cement ties.
