UN Council divided over calls for Libya no-fly zone (AFP) – Mar 14, 2011 UNITED NATIONS — The UN Security Council on Monday wrangled over Arab calls for a Libya no-fly zone with Russia insisting "fundamental questions" remain over the action. European and Arab envoys emphasized the need for urgent UN action against Libyan leader Moamer Kadhafi's offensive on opposition forces which is gaining new ground every day. Because of the split between the international powers, however, the Security Council will need several days to agree measures, diplomats said. The Security Council held negotiations on an exclusion zone as the topic dominated talks between foreign ministers from the Group of Eight nations in Paris.
As Muammar Gaddafi's forces ratchet up their military offensive against the rebels, shells have fallen six kilometres west of the key Libyan town of Ajdabiya, which the rebels have vowed to defend against government forces. Journalists for AFP news agency saw two craters of some four metres across and five metres apart near a road junction, after Monday's shelling. Rebels said there had been no casualties, but the attack on Ajdabiya is seen, from the rebels' viewpoint, "as the last line of defence," said Al Jazeera's Tony Birtley, reporting from the rebel stronghold of Benghazi. "Gaddafi forces are advancing and It seems that fighting is carrying on and coming close to Benghazi," he said.
LONDON | Mon Mar 14, 2011 1:21pm GMT LONDON (Reuters) - International powers should consider arming Libya n rebels and need to take swift action to prevent Muammar Gaddafi's forces from crushing a rebellion, Foreign Secretary William Hague said on Monday. Hague said it would be a nightmare for Libya's people if Gaddafi remained in power and that "a point of decision" was looming for meaningful international intervention. The U.N. Security Council imposed an arms embargo and other sanctions on Libya on February 26, which would have to be lifted before weapons could be funnelled to anti-Gaddafi forces.
Chaque jour qui passe ajoute de la confusion à la situation libyenne. Qui dirige l’opération militaire ? Dans quel but, au nom de qui et de quoi ?
14 March 2011 Last updated at 22:51 GMT The BBC's Jon Leyne says Gaddafi's forces are now focused on Ajdabiya Col Muammar Gaddafi's forces are slowly pushing towards the main rebel-held towns in Libya, reports say.

By Karen Parrish American Forces Press Service WASHINGTON, March 24, 2011 – NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen announced today the alliance will assume command and control of coalition operations enforcing the no-fly zone over Libya authorized by U.N.

AFP - Libyan rebels on Sunday retreated from another key town under heavy shelling from government forces as Moamer Kadhafi loyalists swept closer towards the main opposition-held city of Benghazi. But following the fall of Brega, the commander of the vastly outgunned rebels, Kadhafi's former interior minister, vowed to defend the next town in the path of Kadhafi's forces, Ajdabiya. A lightning counter-offensive over the past week has pushed the rebels out of Mediterranean coastal towns, allowing the regime to wrest back the momentum against the month-long uprising against Kadhafi's four-decade grip on power. Kadhafi's forces are "marching to cleanse the country" of insurgents, Libyan army spokesman Colonel Milad Hussein told reporters in Tripoli. "Our raids are forcing the terrorists to flee.
