Liam Fox says targeting Gaddafi 'would potentially be a possibility'
Dr Liam Fox says Col Muammar Gaddafi might be considered a target as head of Libya's armed forces.
The Defence Secretary has emphasised the need to minimise civilian casualties in any attempt to remove the Libyan leader.
"It would potentially be a possibility," Dr Fox told BBC Radio 5 live.
"We are very careful to avoid [civilian casualties] for humanitarian reasons," he told John Pienaar on Pienaar's Politics. "Also for the propaganda reasons that it would provide for the regime itself."
