Libya's foreign minister calls on African leaders for help to deal with NATO attacks
Libya's foreign minister has called on Africa's leaders to help his country resist NATO's intervention.
Speaking on Tuesday at the African Union Peace and Security Council ministerial meeting on Libya, Abdelati al-Obeidi called for a meeting between heads of states of the African Union member countries to look for ways "to face the external forces."
The AU has denounced the U.N.-sanctioned military action in Libya, saying it undermines attempts at finding an African solution to an African problem.
