U.N Security Council Acts

The UN took decisive action to back rebel forces battling the regime of Muammar Gaddafi today. The UN Security Council voted 10-0 to establish a no-fly zone and all measures short of an invasion to protect civilians from harm. France, Great Britain and Lebanon pushed for the resolution with backing from the United States. China, Germany and Russia – thought to be opponents of the resolution – abstained from voting. The security council’s decision comes as Gaddafi’s forces have made gains against their rebel opponents in recent weeks, taking back towns once seized by anti-regime forces. An expected onslaught of the strategic rebel base of Benghazi is expected imminently.
