Sarkozy to propose air strikes in Libya: source

10th March 2011, Comments 0 comments

French President Nicolas Sarkozy will propose air strikes on Libyan leader Moamer Kadhafi's command headquarters to EU leaders, a source close to discussions told AFP on Thursday.

At an EU summit on the Libyan crisis, he will propose "striking an extremely limited number of points which are the source of the most deadly operations" by forces loyal to Kadhafi, said the source, who asked not to be named.

The three sites being considered are Kadhafi's Bab al-Azizia command headquarters in Tripoli, a military air base in Syrte, east of Tripoli and another in Sebha in the south, the source added.

Sarkozy's office declined to confirm the claim when contacted by AFP.
