    Gaddafi's strongest European ally has weighed in on the situation in Libya too. At a political meeting in Rome, Italian prime minister Silvio Berlusconi said:

  • Timestamp: 

    Libya's ex-interior minister has told Al Jazeera that Tripoli is the only major city in Muammar Gaddafi's hands.

    "Now there is only Tripoli and a few other towns (In Gaddafi's hands). that is why I urge the Libyan people that there is no going back."

  • Timestamp: 

    The UN Security Council is set to meet today to consider a sanctions resolution against Gaddafi. 

    Britain, France, Germany and the US have drawn up a resolution that says the attacks on civilians in Libya could amount to crimes against humanity.

    The resolution calls for an arms embargo and a travel ban and assets freeze against the Libyan leader.

    Our correspondent Hoda Abdel-Hamid, reporting from the eastern Libyan city of al-Baida, says that while many parts of the country's east are no longer under government control, local residents do not want to separate from the rest of Libya.
