Libya: William Hague urges extra support for rebels

An international fund should be set up to provide financial support for the Libyan rebels trying to overthrow Colonel Gaddafi, the British foreign secretary has said.

William Hague was speaking at a meeting in Qatar, following weeks of unrest and international air strikes against the regime in Libya.

He told those attending that if the creation of a fund was successful, "we will have saved lives, helped Libyans choose their own future and helped restore stability in a vital part of the world".
