Arab League wants UN to impose no-fly zone on Libya

CAIRO – The Arab League on Saturday said it had called on the United Nations to impose a no-fly zone in Libya, in a decision that will provide the regional support NATO has said is needed for any military action.
Libyan rebels fighting Muammar Gaddafi have said a no-fly zone to ground Libyan warplanes and to prevent the moving of troops by helicopter is vital if its forces are to succeed.
“The Arab League has officially requested the UN Security Council to impose a no-fly zone against any military action against the Libyan people,” Arab League Secretary-General Amr Moussa told a news conference after a meeting of the group.
