British troops could be deployed to the Libyan border to guard refugees fleeing the Gaddafi regime, Liam Fox signalled yesterday.

The Defence Secretary spoke out following the flight of more than 30,000 civilians – mainly ethnic Berbers – into neighbouring Tunisia. Many have been given shelter by local communities, but others are living in makeshift camps.

Giving evidence to the Commons defence select committee, he was asked whether sending forces to the border area would be within the terms of the UN resolution authorising military action in Libya.
