Even as Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said the ultimate goal for the U.S. was to see Libya's president cede power, a senior administration official says the U.N.-mandated no-fly zone and military action to support it would not necessarily last until Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi steps down.
Libyan strongman Muammar Gaddafi said his forces will soon launch an assault on rebel stronghold Benghazi, saying "traitors" would be showed no mercy but those who laid down their arms would be spared.
Egypt's military has begun shipping arms over the border to Libyan rebels with Washington's knowledge, U.S. and Libyan rebel officials said. The shipments—mostly small arms such as assault rifles and ammunition—appear to be the first confirmed case of an outside government arming the rebel fighters. Those fighters have been losing ground for days in the face of a steady westward advance by forces loyal to Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi.
A group of anti-Gaddafi Libyans resident in Malta are going to court this evening in an attempt to stop the departure from Malta of a tanker which they say is heading for Libya. Earlier today they protested outside Malta Freeport and the OilTanking facility, claiming that arrangements had been made for a Turkish owned, Maltese flagged, tanker Mubariz Ibrahimov to carry a consignment of fuel to Libya.
(Reuters) - Egypt said on Thursday it would not be involved in any military intervention in its neighbour Libya after U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said discussions were under way about possible Arab involvement.
The violent unrest in Libya is claiming more victims as the international community argues about possible action. Opposition fighters claim they have repelled an attack by Colonel Gaddafi's forces on the western city of Misrata.
BENGHAZI, Libya, March 19 (Reuters) - Explosions shook the Libyan city of Benghazi early on Saturday while a fighter jet was heard flying overhead, and residents said the eastern rebel stronghold was under attack from Muammar Gaddafi's forces.
I think the need for action to prevent a routing of the rebels/population of the East is important at a humanitarian level. But considering the location of Gaddafi's forces does this new alliance have assets in place to prevent the fall of Benghazi?
As the world prepares for a military intervention in Libya, Col. Muammar al-Qaddafi has few allies on the international stage. But sometimes, it's family that counts -- and Qaddafi's close-knit family has stood him in good stead during these days of civil war and threats of no-fly zones.
Residents of Libya's de facto rebel capital of Benghazi joined in a massive street party after the United Nations Security Council approved 'all necessary measures' to protect Libyans from Col. Muammar Qaddafi's forces.
Many watchers thought Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi would topple fairly quickly under pressure from demonstrators, as did his counterparts in Egypt and Tunisia. But he has held on, which may be having an effect on popular uprisings in other countries across the region.»
TOBRUK, Libya (AP) — Libya's opposition battled to keep Moammar Gadhafi's forces at the gateway to rebel-held territory on Thursday, hoping for help from the U.N. Security Council before his tanks and troops break through the city of Ajdabiya.
