France’s military action to come within hours

18 march 2011, 14:32
The United Nations sanctioned air strikes against Libya and France said military action would come within hours, AFP reports.

French government spokesman Francois Baroin said that France would take part in the military strikes against forces loyal to Libyan leader Moamer Kadhafi.

"It is likely that US and some western countries may intervene in Libya, and as Kadhafi has the upper hand, it is closer to ending the civil war," said Jason Feer of Singapore-based Argus Media energy market analysts.

The United Nations on Friday voted 10-0 to pass a resolution approving "all necessary measures" to impose a no-fly zone, protect civilian areas and pressure the veteran Libyan leader into accepting a ceasefire.

Permanent members China and Russia -- who did not wield their vetoes -- plus Germany, Brazil and India abstained.

After the announcement, Kadhafi -- who earlier threatened to unleash his forces on rebel stronghold Benghazi -- decided to hold off on plans to mercilessly crush all resistance.
