WASHINGTON - US President Barack Obama and British Prime Minister David Cameron agreed on Tuesday that the "common objective in Libya" must be an end to violence and the departure of Muammar Gaddafi from power, the White House said.

"The president and the prime minister agreed to press forward with planning, including at NATO, on the full spectrum of possible responses, including surveillance, humanitarian assistance, enforcement of the arms embargo, and a no fly zone," the White House said in a statement after a phone call between the two men.
