WASHINGTON (AP) — The United States is urging its citizens to avoid non-essential travel to Libya because of the continuing clashes between protesters and security forces, which so far have led to at least 200 deaths.

In a travel warning issued Sunday, the State Department also cautions citizens already in Libya against traveling to eastern Libya, where many of the protests are taking place.

Demonstrators have not targeted Westerners, but the U.S. warns that even peaceful demonstrations could "quickly become unruly" and foreigners could be subject to harassment or worse.

The U.S. Embassy in Tripoli is offering to help citizens leave the cities of Benghazi, Ajdabiya, Al-Bayda, Al Marj, Derna and Tobruk.
