NOTTINGHAM - International coalition forces operating in Libya should not stray beyond the remit allowed under the United Nations resolution, British Prime Minister David Cameron said on Thursday.

"It is very important we don't go beyond that in any way," Cameron said in a visit to an industrial site in central England when asked if Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi was a legitimate target.

Cameron also said military action by the coalition had "helped to avoid a slaughter" in Benghazi.
