BRUSSELS - French President Nicolas Sarkozy said EU leaders meeting on Friday backed creation of humanitarian aid zones, some of them within Libya, to help Libyans and would consider all options to protect them.

Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi must go and the rebel Libyan National Council is now considered by the European Union as the legitimate political representatives of the Libyan people, he told a news conference in Brussels, adding that there were plans for a summit of EU, Arab and African leaders in coming weeks.
