Libya air strikes: 'Bulk of burden' on UK and France

Foreign ministers from Nato countries are gathering for talks in Berlin, with the crisis in Libya at the top of the agenda.

Military action to enforce a UN-mandated no-fly zone over Libya began last month. Nato has since taken leadership of the mission.

The UK and France want more countries involved in the most aggressive role, that of attacking targets on the ground, but there is some resistance to this.

The BBC's Jon Leyne in Benghazi says the "bulk of the burden" for carrying out air strikes in Libya is falling on Britain and France.
