Libya’s Foreign Minister Koussa announced that military operations will end, as Western forces prepare to enact a no-fly zone. The announcement came shortly after the U.K. said it would send fighter jets to Mediterranean bases. This was reported several hours ago by the AFP news service.
Gaddaffi, Ghadafi, Khaddafi, Kadafi, THE COLONEL continues to sound bellicose, though, and not necessarily in agreement with his foreign minister.
Also, the Al Jazeera news article (referenced above) quoted sources advising that the announcement should be viewed somewhat tentatively. The actual content of the statement issued by Libya’s foreign minister was “carefully crafted, almost forensic”.
