World Mulls Libya Intervention

The U.S. is moving warships toward Libya as world leaders discuss imposing a no-fly zone over the country. Britain and France have both indicated a willingness to intervene militarily, particularly over concern that Gaddafi could use mustard gas on his own people: The Telegraph says Libya has up to 14 tons of the substance secretly stored in the desert. Meanwhile, Libya’s situation is looking more and more like civil war. Rebels are fighting pro-Gaddafi forces across the country, both in cities near Tripoli, like Az Zawiyah, and in the east, like Ajdabiya.
