Libyan rebels celebrate UN no-fly zone resolution
The UN Security Council has backed a no-fly zone over Libya and "all necessary measures" short of an invasion "to protect civilians and civilian-populated areas".
In New York, the 15-member body voted 10-0 in favour, with five abstentions.
Rebel forces reacted with joy in their Benghazi stronghold.
