France rejects Italian Libya ceasefire call


France has opposed Italy’s call for a suspension in hostilities in Libya. Italian Foreign Minister Franco Frattini on Wednesday called for a “humanitarian” pause, but French officials said that it would help Moamer Kadhafi’s forces.

“We have seen the effects of the crisis and therefore also of Nato action not only in eastern and south-western regions but also in Tripoli,” Frattini told a parliamentary committee meeting. “I believe an immediate humanitarian suspension of hostilities is required in order to create effective humanitarian corridors.”
