Libya crisis: Cameron urges UN to 'show leadership'

David Cameron has urged the UN to "show leadership" ahead of negotiations about whether to back a no-fly zone in Libya.

The UK, France and Lebanon are pressing for the move to stop air attacks on civilians as fighting intensifies.

The UK prime minister said a no-fly zone was not a "simple solution" to the Libyan crisis but one of a series of steps that was needed to "make sure we get rid of this regime".
