Cameron, Sarkozy Fly to Libya

British Prime Minister David Cameron and French President Nicolas Sarkozy landed in Tripoli Thursday to congratulate the Libyan rebels on their victory over Gaddafi. Sarzoky, who urged a NATO intervention early on and whose visit is seen as something of a victory lap, said that the new Libyan government should engage in no "settling of accounts" against the former regime, instead urging all parties to show "forgiveness." Airstrikes, meanwhile, will continue for "as long as necessary," according to Cameron. Next, the diplomatic team will head to the rebel stronghold of Benghazi.
