World leaders meet to discuss action in Libya


Gaddafi’s push into Libya’s second city of 670,000 people, in spite of the ceasefire pledged on Friday, appeared to be an attempt to pre-empt Western military action.

France and Britain declined to react to the latest attacks ahead of the Paris talks, but a French government source said the international community must act fast.

“Everything is ready (to act) but the decision is now a political one. It’s clear we have to move quickly,” he said.

French Foreign Minister Alain Juppe met EU Foreign Minister Catherine Ashton earlier on Saturday to discuss the EU’s role. Reuters
