Letter from the PM and President Sarkozy to President Van Rompuy Since the Libyan people have started to rise against Muammar Qadhafi’s brutal regime, the world is witnessing on a daily basis an unacceptable continuation of violence and repression in Libya. Ignoring UN Security Council resolution 1970 demands as well as calls from regional organisations and the whole international community, Qadhafi’s regime continues to attack his own people including with aircraft and helicopters. It is clear to us that the regime has lost any legitimacy it may have once had. This deliberate use of military force against civilians is utterly unacceptable.
The Libyan Republic - The Interim Transitional National Council In this important historical juncture which Libya is passing through right now, we find ourselves at a turning point with only two solutions. Either we achieve freedom and race to catch up with humanity and world developments, or we are shackled and enslaved under the feet of the tyrant Mu’ammar Gaddafi where we shall live in the midst of history. From this junction came the announcement of the Transitional National Council, a step on the road to liberate every part of the Libyan lands from Aamsaad in the east to Raas Ajdair in the west, and from Sirte in the north to Gatrun in the south. To liberate Libya from the hands of the tyrant Mu’ammar Gaddafi who made lawful to himself the exploitation of his people and the wealth of this country.
Arab League calls on UN to impose Libya no-fly zone Arab League Secretary-General Amir Moussa. Photo: REUTERS WASHINGTON - The United States on Saturday backed the Arab League's call for the U.N. Libya rebels face Gaddafi and stand up for freedom. Forces loyal to Muammar Gaddafi, the Libyan leader, have continued a large-scale military offensive against rebels in the country's east, launching air strikes at the oil-producing towns of Ras Lanuf and Brega. Some of the fiercest fighting on Friday was reported from Ras Lanuf, where rebels launched a counter-attack to stem the advance of pro-Gaddafi forces. The rebels had earlier lost control of pockets of residential areas, and were clinging on to other parts of the town, sources told Al Jazeera. Plumes of smoke were seen billowing from an oil installation in the city, reportedly the result of military air strikes. Ibrahim al-Alwani, a rebel fighter, said he and comrades still in Ras Lanuf had seen government troops in the town centre. "I saw maybe 150 men and three tanks," he told Reuters on Friday morning.
