Libyan rebel leaders called on French President Nicolas Sarkozy for more aid during a visit to Paris Wednesday, saying that with extra funding the anti-Gaddafi forces could be in Tripoli within “days”.
AFP - Military leaders from the rebel-held Libyan city of Misrata asked French President Nicolas Sarkozy on Wednesday for extra aid to defeat ruler Moamer Kadhafi, a member of their delegation said.
France is taking part in NATO-coordinated strikes against Kadhafi's military assets and was the first outside state to formally recognise the rebels' Transitional National Council.
White House spokesman Jay Carney on Tuesday said the Libyan strongman was "cut off from fuel and cash."
