International agreement on Libya "imperative" says UN chief

The international community is being urged by the UN Secretary-General to remain united in its policy towards Libya.

Ban Ki-moon

Air strikes by western countries including the US, UK and France are continuing in Libya following the implementation of a UN resolution to protect civilians caught up in a pro-democracy uprising. Charles Appel reports:

As air strikes continue against the Libyan regime of Muammar al-Qadhafi, so does the diplomatic activity.  The UN Secretary-General, Ban Ki-moon, met Amr Moussa, the head of the Arab League in Cairo on Monday and told him it was imperative that the international community continues to speak with “one voice”.   He said thousands of lives were at stake; he also warned of a humanitarian emergency.  The Security Council voted last week to impose a “no-fly” zone to prevent the Qadhafi regime  from using air power against the Libyan people.
