Clinton calls on Gaddafi to step down
Spain: Hillary Clinton, the US secretary of state has said Muammar
Gaddaf should resign instead of issuing threats after the Libyan leader
threatened on to attack European “homes, offices and families” unless
Nato stopped bombing his country.
“Gaddafi should put the well-being and the interests of his own
people first and he should step down from power,” Clinton said in Madrid
“The NATO-led mission is on track. The pressure on Gaddafi is
mounting and the rebels have been gaining strength and momentum. We need
to see this through and we are in complete agreement that we will.”
NATO said on Saturday that it was increasing the number of air
strikes on western Libya, an area largely under Gaddafi’s control.
