    BBC News - Libya: France recognises rebels as government

    France recognises Libyan rebels

    France has become the first country to recognise the Libyan rebel leadership, the National Libyan Council (NLC), as the country's legitimate government.

    It comes as Nato is set to discuss military options in the Libyan conflict including a possible no-fly zone.

    There is growing concern about the bombing of rebel-held areas by the forces of Col Muammar Gaddafi.

    A BBC team which were detained and beaten up in Libya witnessed widespread mistreatment by the security forces.

    In recent days pro-Gaddafi forces have tried to regain ground in the east, and have bombarded rebel forces in the town of Zawiya, 50km (30 miles) west of Tripoli.

    Continued shelling
    The president of the International Red Cross said on Thursday there was a marked increase in civilian casualties in what he called a "civil war".

    The move to recognition announced by the French presidency, a day after Euro-MPs urged the EU to recognise the rebels.

    The office of President Nicolas Sarkozy said France regarded the NLC as Libya's "legitimate representative".

    Col Gaddafi's forces continued shelling the eastern rebel-held oil town of Ras Lanuf on Thursday, rebels and eyewitnesses said.

    The front line has moved between Ras Lanuf and neighbouring Bin Jawad, roughly 550 km (340 miles) east of Tripoli.

    There has also been fierce fighting in recent days in Zawiya. On Wednesday, state TV said the army had retaken the town.

    Late on Wednesday, three members of a BBC Arabic television team gave graphic accounts of how they were arrested and beaten by government forces outside Zawiya earlier this week.

    They were subjected to mock executions and held for 26 hours in bloodstained cells, where they heard people screaming in adjacent rooms.

    Feras Killani - a member of the BBC team who is of Palestinian descent - appears to have been singled out for repeated beatings.

    Cautious Nato
    The conflict in Libya has raged since mid-February when opponents to Col Gaddafi's 41-year rule seized many towns and cities in eastern Libya, following successful popular uprisings in neighbouring Tunisia and Egypt.

    BBC diplomatic correspondent Jonathan Marcus says fears that the military balance may be shifting in Col Gaddafi's favour have prompted calls for urgent international action.

    Thursday's Nato meeting in Brussels is expected to focus on military options, including a possible no-fly zone aimed at stopping government planes bombing rebel-held towns.

    US Defence Secretary Robert Gates has said such a zone would need to begin with operations against Col Gaddafi's air defences.

    On Wednesday, US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton told the CBS TV network: "We believe it's important that this not be an American or a Nato or a European effort. It needs to be an international one."

    Our correspondent says there are differing levels of enthusiasm among members for such a mission and that no decisions are likely to be taken - although contingency planning may be intensified.

    Nato Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen has said the alliance is "not looking to intervene in Libya, but we have asked our military to conduct the necessary planning for all eventualities".

    its okey but the World should not let genocide to happen in Libya in the name of Gadaff

    the best solution is for ARAB nations to speak out what they want then the World will let it happening

    Gadaffi is using his wealth to bloodshed Libyans through missionaries. He is well established in many countries particularly those with no Rule of laws and democracy (e.g Zimbabwe, Uganda...) I am trying to imagine if Gadaffi withstands to remain in power and kind of message that is sent to the rest of developing countries whose presidents have been on power for many decades.

    International joint efforts are needed to make sure that Gadaffi does not remain on power. Gadaffi has divided Libyans by telling them that invaders are looking for their oils so they should fight to the last man/woman and last bullet. I support France's position and other nations of the same powers to make sure that Gadaffi is out of Libya. What shame will be if Gaddafi stays!! My problem is that even Mseven will learn the same strategy...kill civilians by guns for his life long presidency! The same applies to ....

    God forbid!!!

    Choko choko zilipoanza Tunisia, then Misri na hatimaye Libya, nilipata hisia za kuwepo mkono wa mtu. Utambuzi wa serikali ya Ufaransa ni uthibitisho wa mkono huo wa mtu.

    Kitakachofuata kesho ni uvamizi wa majeshi ya Nato kuteketeza jeshi la Anga la Libya kwa kisingizio cha protection innocent human beings. Then watawapatia military supplies hao inaowaita wapinzani ili kuchochea civil war kuhalalisha infantry millitary intavention.

    Baada ya uvamizi wa mabeberu kule Afghanistan na Iraq, sasa ni zamu ya Libya. Wengi wataaminishwa Gaddafi will be deposed for humanitarian causes kama walivyoivamia Iraq in search of WMD!.

    The genuine motive behind ni rasilimali mafuta ya Libya!.
