Canada on Tuesday ordered Libya's diplomats to leave the country within five days and cut off their access to the embassy's bank accounts, Foreign Minister John Baird said.

"These people now have five business days to vacate the embassy and leave the country," Baird said in a statement, explaining the steps were taken to further isolate the regime of Libyan strongman Moamer Kadhafi.
