Libya conflict: UN chief Ban urges stable transition

UN chief Ban Ki-moon has called for the international community to work together to restore order in Libya and for fighting to end.

Mr Ban said the crisis had entered a "new and decisive phase" and said the emphasis must now be on ensuring there was a smooth transition of leadership.

Rebels say they have almost complete control of Tripoli, while fighting continues in the east.

Daniel Griffiths reports.
