Greece said it was expelling the Libyan ambassador to the country, angered at an accord signed on Nov 27th between Libya and Turkey mapping out a sea boundary between the two countries close to Crete, Reuters reported on Friday Dec 6th.

The Libyan ambassador Mohamed Younis AB Menfi had 72 hours to leave the country, Greek Foreign Minister Nikos Dendias told a news briefing. Dendias called the Turkey-Libyan accord a 'blatant violation of international law'.
