Libya conflict: Cameron and Sarkozy visit key cities

Thousands of Libyans have turned out to cheer UK Prime Minister David Cameron and French President Nicolas Sarkozy in the eastern city of Benghazi.

"It is great to be in free Libya," Mr Cameron said. "Col Gaddafi said he would hunt you down like rats, but you showed the courage of lions."

Earlier, the two met Libya's interim leader in Tripoli and pledged their support for the new authorities.
