Reuters - Barack Obama, the US president, says that the military mission in Libya is clear, focused and limited, and that it has already saved "countless" civilian lives.

He added that  Libya's air defences have been disabled, Gaddafi's forces are no longer advancing and in places like the city of Benghazi, a rebel stronghold, his forces have been pushed back.

"So make no mistake, because we acted quickly, a humanitarian catastrophe has been avoided and the lives of countless civilians - innocent men, women and children - have been saved," he said in a weekly radio address.

AFP - The United States and it's allies are considering supplying weapons to the Libyan oppostion, the Washngton Post newspaper has reported.
It added, citing unnamed US and European officials, that the Obama administration believed the UN resolution that authorised international intervention in Libya has the "flexibility" to allow such assistance.
According to the newspaper, Gene Cretz, the recently withdrawn US ambassador to Libya, said administration officials were having "the full gamut" of discussions on "potential assistance we might offer, both on the non-lethal and the lethal side".
But no decisions had been made, the paper noted.
