Gaddafi ‘not targeted’ by allied strikes

Latest Breaking News: Gaddafi ‘not targeted’ by allied strikes >President Barack Obama has said the US will transfer its leading role on Libya “within days” to ensure the burden of enforcing a UN resolution against Colonel Muammar Gaddafi is shared.

He said Nato would play a co-ordinating role but differences remain within the organisation, with France and Turkey opposed to Nato taking the lead.

The UN resolution was passed to protect civilians from Col Gaddafi’s forces.

Fighting continues, with anti-aircraft fire heard in Tripoli late on Monday.

It followed large explosions, which some reports said came from the direction of a Gaddafi compound that was hit the previous night. Libyan television reported “several new attacks”.

A Libyan government spokesman, Ibrahim Musa, said “many people” had also been killed in an air attack on Sirte airport, but the report could not be confirmed.

Fierce fighting was also reported in Misrata, 200km (130 miles) east of Tripoli, with rebels saying there had been a four-day bombardment by pro-Gaddafi forces and a number of deaths.
