The UN human rights head Navi Pillay has said that reports from Libya indicate thousands may have been killed or injured as the government crackdown escalates "alarmingly".
Tonight, we will have the latest on what is happening there and Matt Prodger will look at how the United Nations Security Council and Nato - both of which have held emergency talks today - can respond.
Closer to home, Iain Watson will report on the meetings of the UK's National Security Council and Cobra emergency planning committee, and whether the recent upheaval in North Africa and the Middle East is prompting a government rethink on foreign policy.
Guests tonight include Douglas Hurd and Lord Owen.
And we have an interview with the last surviving relative of Anne Frank who knew her, her cousin Buddy Elias.
All that at 10.30pm with tonight's presenter Mishal Husain.
