Revolt in Libya: is it time to intervene? (Part 1)

The dream that began in Tunisia and Egypt has turned in to a nightmare in Libya. Hundreds are feared dead in a brutal crackdown ordered by Colonel Gadhafi. Given the rapprochement between Libya’s firebrand leader and the west in recent years, is it now time for the international community to intervene and protect the Libyan people from Gadhafi’s wrath?

  • Valéry DENOIX de SAINT MARC, Lawyer and member of the Official Committee of the AFVT
  • Salaheddin TUMI, Libyan economics researcher, Université Paris-Est
  • Richard DALTON, Former British Ambassador to Libya, Associate Fellow, Middle East and North Africa Programme, Chatham House (By satellite from London)
  • Ash JAIN, Visiting fellow at the Washington Institute for Near East policy, Former State Department official (By satellite from Washington)

Programme produced by Perrine Desplats and Yi Song.

Watch the 1st part.
