Clinton: US long way from Libya no-fly zone decision

WASHINGTON - It is unlikely that US planners will reach a decision soon on whether to establish a no-fly zone over Libya, US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said on Wednesday.
"I think we are a long way from making that decision," Clinton told a Senate hearing, adding that it was possible that US military assets could be used to "support getting equipment and supplies to areas that have need of them and where we are welcome."
The international community should be ready to implement a no-fly zone over Libya to prevent Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi's attacks on his own civilians, US Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman John Kerry said earlier Wednesday.
