The head of the Arab League has criticised the bombardments.

His comments are significant because the Arab League’s support for the no-fly zone was a key factor in getting UN Security Council backing for the resolution authorising the move.

“What is happening in Libya differs from the aim of imposing a no-fly zone, and what we want is the protection of civilians and not the bombardment of more civilians,” said Arab League Secretary General Amr Moussa.
