UNITED NATIONS - France and Britain on Wednesday urged the UN Security Council to take swift action to establish a no-fly zone over Libya, where forces loyal to leader Muammar Gaddafi continue to pummel rebels in the east.

Britain, France and Lebanon have circulated to the 15-nation council a draft resolution to authorize a no-fly zone to halt Libyan government air strikes on rebels. But the United States, Russia, China, Germany, India and other council members are either undecided or have voiced doubts about the proposal.

The three distributed the draft on Tuesday after the Arab League called on the council over the weekend to establish a no-fly zone.
