Allies defend UN-backed mission in Libya

Allied strikes on Libya will continue until its leader, Col Gaddafi, meets UN terms, US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has told world leaders.

Some 40 delegations are meeting in London to discuss the next steps for Libya amid UN-backed military action.

Prime Minister David Cameron said allied action was saving lives and UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon said he would lead efforts to co-ordinate the international effort to map out Libya's future.

Meanwhile, Qatar's Prime Minister Sheikh Hamad Bin Jassim Bin Jabor Althani pledged his support for the UN-backed military action.
