WARSAW - The head of NATO said on Thursday he did not think it was too late to intervene in Libya but said much depended on the United Nations.

"Time is of the essence, time is rapidly running out, but I don't think it's too late. Very much will depend on the UN Security Council decision," NATO Secretary-General Anders Fogh Rasmussen said in Warsaw, referring to current deliberations at the world body.

"I can imagine the international community and the United Nations standing strongly together behind the Libyan people if the weakened regime continues to attack its own people."
