What should the international community do about Libya?
The UN Security Council has backed a no-fly zone over Libya and "all necessary measures" short of an invasion "to protect civilians and civilian-populated areas". What can be done to resolve the Libya crisis?
Libyan leader Col Muammar Gaddafi's forces have recently retaken several towns seized by rebels in an uprising.
Rebel forces reacted with joy in their Benghazi stronghold but a government spokesman condemned UN "aggression".
Loyalist forces are bearing down on Benghazi, home to a million people.
What should be the next steps for dealing with Libya? Is military intervention a realistic option? What are the implications for the region?
