Pressure mounts for Libya intervention

Pressure is growing for the international community to intervene in the escalating civil war in Libya.

Calls for a no-fly zone to be imposed gained momentum today, with the six Gulf Arab states expressing their backing for such a move.

Britain and France are understood to be working on a draft UN resolution, though there are questions over whether such a motion would have any chance of being approved.

UK foreign secretary William Hague says several key conditions would have to be met before such a resolution was put to the council.
