BRUSSELS - The EU has outlined a provisional plan that could see European troops sent to the besieged Libyan city of Misrata to protect aid deliveries if requested by the United Nations, EU officials said on Monday.

The 27 EU states agreed at the start of this month it would be willing to launch such a mission if the UN asked for it, but the world body has yet to make such a request."The 27 have now adopted unanimously the concept of the operations," a spokesman for EU foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton said, adding that the plan was agreed on Thursday.

"But it's not a detailed plan of action -- it's just the next step and we would only get to the stage of any detail if and when there is a request from the UN," Michael Mann said.
