Clinton meets with European counterparts to discuss Libya
US Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton was Monday meeting her counterparts from the European Union to discuss the situation in Libya, DPA reported.
The meeting with the Europeans was meant to coordinate policy and tougher sanctions against Libyan leader Moamer Gaddafi, his family and entourage.
Clinton earlier met with EU foreign affairs chief Catherine Ashton on Libya, according to a US official. This follows the UN Security Council's unanimous approval over the weekend for sanctions against Libya.
German Foreign Minister Guido Westerwelle said in a radio interview before the meeting, which also includes British and Italian officials, that the issue of imposing a no-fly zone over Libya would be raised.
