Britain sees deal on Libya rebel fund in coming week

LONDON - Britain hopes for international agreement in the coming week on setting up a fund to help Libya's rebel-held east, Foreign Secretary William Hague told parliament on Tuesday.
The fund is aimed at helping the rebel's interim National Council help pay public sector salaries and with other costs.
"In the coming week, we hope to agree internationally the process for establishing a temporary financial mechanism to provide a transparent structure for international financial support for the financial requirements of the (National Council) such as public sector pay," Hague said.
