LONDON - The French ambassador to the United Nations, Gerard Araud, said on Friday he expected military intervention in Libya within hours of a Paris summit on Saturday.

"Tomorrow we will have a summit in Paris with all the major participants in the operations, and in the diplomatic effort. So I think it would be a good moment to send the last signal," he told BBC's Newsnight.

"Which means the US, the UK and France, we have also launched the ultimatum about the ceasefire...and we have set the conditions. So I guess that after this summit, I think that in the coming hours, I think we will go to launch the military intervention."

US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Britain's Prime Minister David Cameron will discuss the next steps on Libya with French President Nicolas Sarkozy and Arab leaders in Paris on Saturday.
