Libya meeting to create fund to help rebels

ROME - A NATO-backed coalition against Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi will announce the creation of a special fund to help the cash-strapped rebel movement, Italian Foreign Minister Franco Frattini said on Thursday.
"I welcome the announcement, to be made today, of the establishment of a special fund -- known as the Temporary Financial Mechanism -- that will permit funds to be channeled effectively and transparently to the Interim National Council," he said, according to the text of a speech to be given at the meeting in Rome.
