ISTANBUL - Military action against Muammar Gaddafi's regime will be intensifed while a UN envoy presses for negotiations to end the civil war in Libya, Britain's Foreign Secretary William Hague said on Friday.
Hague said the UN secretary-general's special envoy to Libya, Abdul Elah Al-Khatib, would be authorised to present terms for Gaddafi to leave power.
