World powers meet on Libya’s future

31 March 2011 No Comment

INTERNATIONAL powers met in London on Tuesday to map out a future for Libya, vowing to continue military action until leader Muammar Gaddafi stops his ‘murderous attacks’ on civilians.

More than 35 countries, including seven Arab states plus the heads of the United Nations and Nato, gathered as Gaddafi urged Western nations to end their UN-backed offensive against his country.

British Prime Minister David Cameron said that although the military action was having an effect in protecting civilians, the western city of Misrata was still under attack from the Libyan leader’s forces.

‘I propose that today’s conference should agree to set up a contact group, which will put political effort on a sustained basis into supporting the Libyan people,’ Mr Cameron said as he opened the conference.

‘As I speak the people of Misrata are continuing to suffer murderous attacks from the regime,’ he added.

‘I have had reports this morning that the city is under attack from both land and sea. Gaddafi is using snipers to shoot them (the people of Misrata) down and let them bleed to death in the street.’ US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said meanwhile that the allied strikes on Libya would go on until Gaddafi meets the terms of a UN resolution calling for a ceasefire and authorising a no-fly zone to protect civilians.
