Libya PM: Gaddafi could still destabilize N. Africa

UNITED NATIONS - NATO should continue operations in Libya as long as Muammar Gaddafi's loyalists are killing civilians, and the toppled leader still could destabilize the region, Libya's de facto prime minister said on Monday.
UN Security Council resolution 1973, passed in March, called for protection of civilians by all available means, leading NATO to launch a campaign of air strikes that played a major role in helping rebels overthrow Gaddafi last month in the oil-producing North African nation.But de facto Prime Minister Mahmoud Jibril told a SecurityCouncil meeting on Libya that the "mission is far fromaccomplished" and that "the foundations of (resolution) 1973continue to be valid."
