Arab League 'united' over Libya action

Help

The head of the Arab League, Amr Moussa, has said he respects a United Nations resolution authorising attacks on Libyan air defences, after earlier comments suggested there was waning support from his organisation for the American-led action.

On Sunday, Mr Moussa said that Arabs did not want military strikes by Western powers that hit civilians, when the League called for a no-fly zone over Libya.

But the following day, he reiterated concerns about the safety of civilians and dismissed suggestions of disunity.
