Libya: Gaddafi regime defiant amid coalition pressure

Colonel Gaddafi's regime stands defiant after a newly formed international "contact group" on Libya called for the leader to stand down.

Speaking from Tripoli, the BBC's Jeremy Bowen says that Col Gaddafi's regime is warning of "dangers ahead" and a potentially long war.

Meanwhile, Prime Minister David Cameron has said coalition forces will do everything they can to stop what he called the "murder" of Libyan civilians by Col Gaddafi.

Mr Cameron has met with French President Nicholas Sarkozy to discuss the next steps for military action in Libya.
