PARIS - France is in favor of unfreezing Libyan assets abroad to help finance a rebel movement fighting Muammar Gaddafi's troops, a source close to the office of French President Nicolas Sarkozy said on Friday.

"If the funds remain frozen, the Libyan National Council (rebel movement) will run out of resources, so we are having a debate with our European partners to see what can be done about this," the source told Reuters.
