Libya opposition's Jebril to address European Parliament

A senior representative of Libyan forces opposed to Colonel Gaddafi has called for the immediate recognition of the opposition as the legitimate representatives of the Libyan people.

Dr Mahmoud Jebril said Colonel Gaddafi lost his legitimacy as soon as his forces opened fire on the Libyan people.

Dr Jebril is in Strasbourg where he is due to address the European Parliament on Wednesday.

The BBC's Europe Correspondent Chris Morris reports.
