BRUSSELS - A Libyan government official has told the EU that Tripoli would allow an independent investigation into allegations of human rights abuses during the uprising against leader Muammar Gaddafi, a senior EU official said on Tuesday.

Pro-Gaddafi forces are pressing a counter-offensive against rebels who have seized towns along the Mediterranean coastal road and across the east, using artillery, tanks and warplanes. The United Nations has demanded an end to "indiscriminate" attacks on civilians and warned Tripoli anyone who violates international law will be brought to account.
