WASHINGTON - It is just a matter of time before Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi is ousted, US President Barack Obama said on Tuesday.

At a joint news conference with German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Obama described "significant" progress in the NATO drive to protect Libyan civilians and rebels from attacks by Gaddafi supporters.

"What you are seeing across the country is an inexorable trend of the regime forces being pushed back, being incapacitated," Obama said. "I think it is just a matter of time before Gaddafi goes."
