UK armed forces chief: NATO must widen Libya targets

LONDON - NATO must broaden its range of bombing targets in Libya or run the risk of Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi clinging on to power, Britain's chief of defence staff was quoted as saying on Sunday.
General David Richards suggested in an interview that NATO should attack Libyan infrastructure, which is not yet on its target list.
NATO is bombing Libya under a UN mandate to protect civilians and says it strikes only military targets. The leaders of Britain, France and the United States say they will not halt the campaign until Gaddafi leaves power.
Richards said the military campaign to date had been a "significant success" for NATO, but it needed to do more.
