Libya: US ambassador Susan Rice urges tough UN draft

US ambassador Susan Rice has said the UN should consider more than just a no-fly zone over Libya, amid Security Council division on a draft resolution.

The US has previously been cool on the effectiveness of such a zone, but Ms Rice said further measures were now needed.

Forces loyal to Col Gaddafi are taking ground from rebels, who say they fear "genocide" without swift UN action.
