UK's Hague: NATO must intensify efforts in Libya

LUXEMBOURG - NATO must intensify its efforts in Libya to protect civilians from attacks by forces loyal to leader Muammar Gaddafi, British Foreign Secretary William Hague said on Tuesday.
"We must maintain and intensify our efforts in NATO," Hague told reporters on arrival at a meeting of European Union foreign ministers in Luxembourg, when asked about criticism of the Western military alliance's campaign in Libya.
"That is why the United Kingdom has in the last weeks supplied additional aircraft capable of striking ground targets threatening the civilian population ... of course it would be welcome if other countries also did the same," he said.
