The Foreign Office in London confirmed Friday that a British national had died in Libya, after the bodies of a British man and a New Zealand woman were found shot dead.

Libyan troops found the bodies southwest of Tripoli on Thursday, a security source in the north African country told AFP.

A Foreign Office spokesman told AFP on Friday: "We are aware of the tragic death of a British national in Libya and we stand ready to provide consular assistance."

It is not believed the victim's family is yet aware of his death.

The bodies have been moved to Tripoli, the security source said.
