Libya conflict: Nato summit fails to secure new planes

A Nato meeting of foreign ministers on Libya has ended without a commitment from allies to send more strike planes.

Nato Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen said the threat to Libyan civilians would not disappear while Col Muammar Gaddafi was still in power.

James Robbins reports.
