12.33pm: Here's a lunchtime summary.

• Gaddafi forces have retaken the town of Brega and are shelling Ajdarbia, 90 miles from Benghazi. Rebel forces plan to make a stand there, the last major obstacle to Gaddafi before Benghazi.
• Bahrain has declared a state of emergency. A Saudi soldier has been shot by a protester in Bahrain. A 1,000-strong force from Saudi Arabia and other members of the Gulf Cooperation Council arrived in Bahrain yesterday.
• Libyan government troops have captured Zwara, the last rebel-held city west of Tripoli to fall back under government control.
• G8 foreign ministers are expected to omit any mention of a no-fly zone in their draft communique in Paris. The West German foreign minister said the west should not get sucked into a war in north Africa,

Jauns pagrieziens, šai lietā - Saudu Ārābija ievedusi karaspēku Bahreinā. Jauki.

Libya and Middle East unrest - live updates
http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/blog/20 ... ests-libya
• Gaddafi forces push towards Benghazi
• Britain and France back no-fly zone at UN
• Bahrain security crushes protest at Pearl square
• Hillary Clinton tours Tahrir square

6.00pm: Here's a recap of events so far today:
Libya

• Gaddafi's forces have continued to attack opposition-held territory in Libya. The city of Misrata, 200km east of Tripoli has been bombarded by Gaddafi's forces using tanks and artillery witnesses told Reuters. A doctor at Misrata hospital said 11 people were killed. They have also been shelling Ajdabiya nonstop, the Associated Press reports, which indicates that the rebels have not been completely driven out of the city, which is only 90 miles from Benghazi.

• The UN secretary-general, Ban Ki-moon, has called for an immediate ceasefire in Libya. He is said to be "gravely concerned about the increasing military escalation by government forces, which include indications of an assault on the city of Benghazi". Meanwhile, the UN security council continues to discuss the prospect of a no-fly zone. The US said there could be a vote on the draft resolution tomorrow.

• Saif al-Islam Gaddafi has told French TV that the fighting will be over in 48 hours, while pledging that the regime will not take revenge against the rebels.

• The Guardian reporter, Ghaith Abdul-Ahad, who was detained by the Libyan authorities two weeks ago, has been freed but four New York Times reporters in the country are missing, according to the US paper.

Bahrain

• Six people have been reported killed in Manama after Bahraini military troops launched a large-scale assault against hundreds of anti-government protesters occupying Pearl Roundabout, the focus of demonstrations over the past month. There were reports of the military occupying the Sulimanya hospital and beating medical staff.

• The use of force against protesters in Bahrain has attracted international condemnation, including rare criticism from the US of its Gulf allies. Secretary of state Hillary Clinton described events in Bahrain as "alarming" and said its Gulf partners which had sent troops in to support the Bahraini government were "on the wrong track". Iraqi and Lebanese Shias demonstrated in solidarity with the protesters in Bahrain. Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and the Iraqi prime minister Nuri al-Maliki also criticised the crackdown.

Yemen

• At least 150 people were wounded when Yemeni security forces tried to break up an anti-government rally in the Red Sea city of Hudaida. A doctor treating protesters at a sit-in in Hudaida said hundreds of security forces and plainclothes police, all armed, attacked the demonstrators.

Syria

• A Syrian human rights organisation said security forces arrested 25 people who were part of a demonstration demanding the release of political prisoners in front of the interior ministry in central Damascus. Witnesses said security forces beat some of the protesters.

Endgame in Libya: how the world called time on Gaddafi

Cameron built an international consensus leading to UN security council resolution 1973 by keeping Obama at arms length

For a brief, happy period on Friday, it seemed that the United Nations security council resolution adopted in New York the previous evening had actually stopped Muammar Gaddafi in his tracks. To general surprise, the Libyan dictator announced an immediate ceasefire, prompting relief and joy among the inhabitants of the besieged rebel city of Benghazi. The commitment by David Cameron, Barack Obama and French president Nicolas Sarkozy to use "any necessary means" to halt Gaddafi's onslaught on his citizens had achieved immediate results. That euphoria did not last long.

Exactly eight years after the US and Britain invaded Iraq, the west is involved – this time with the support of the Arab League – in another deadly and unpredictable military confrontation with a dictator in the Middle East.

West pounds Libya, Gaddafi vows retaliation
2011-3-20 10:24

The US, Britain and France pounded Libya with Tomahawk missiles and air strikes into the early hours of Sunday, sparking fury from Muammar al-Gaddafi who said the Mediterranean was now a "battlefield."

United States and British forces fired at least 110 Tomahawk cruise missiles at Libya's air defence sites on Saturday, a top US military officer said, two days after a UN Security Council resolution with Arab backing authorised military action.

An AFP correspondent said bombs were dropped early Sunday near Bab al-Aziziyah, the Tripoli headquarters of strongman Muammar al-Gaddafi, prompting barrages of anti-aircraft fire from Libyan forces.

State television had earlier said hundreds of people had gathered to serve as human shields at Bab al-Aziziyah and at the capital's international airport.

A Libyan official told AFP that at least 48 people had died in the assaults, which began with a strike at 1645 GMT Saturday by a French warplane on a vehicle the French military said belonged to pro-Gaddafi forces.

Libyan state media said that Western warplanes bombed civilian targets in Tripoli, causing casualties while an army spokesman said strikes also hit fuel tanks feeding the rebel-held city of Misrata, east of Tripoli.

Gaddafi, in a brief audio message broadcast on state television, fiercely denounced the attacks as a "barbaric, unjustified Crusaders' aggression."

He vowed retaliatory strikes on military and civilian targets in the Mediterranean, which he said had been turned into a "real battlefield."

"Now the arms depots have been opened and all the Libyan people are being armed," to fight against Western forces, the veteran leader warned.

Libya's foreign ministry said that in the wake of the attacks, it regarded as invalid a UN resolution ordering a ceasefire by its forces and demanded an urgent meeting of the Security Council.

The attacks on Libya "threatens international peace and security," the foreign ministry said in a statement.

"Libya demands an urgent meeting of the UN Security Council after the French-American-British aggression against Libya, an independent state member of the United Nations," the statement said.

On Thursday, the Security Council passed Resolution 1973, which authorised the use of "all necessary means" to protect civilians and enforce a ceasefire and no-fly zone against strongman Muammar al-Gaddafi's forces.

The following day, Libya declared a ceasefire in its battle to crush an armed revolt against Gaddafi's regime which began on February 15 and said it had grounded its warplanes.

As a result of the Western attacks, however, "the effect of resolution 1973 imposing a no-fly zone are over," the ministry statement said.

State television, quoting a security official, said Libya had also decided to suspend cooperation with Europe in the fight against illegal immigration due to the attacks.

"Libya has decided not to be responsible over the illegal immigration to Europe," the television cited the official as saying.

Boats carrying thousands of undocumented migrants, mainly Tunisians, have landed on the Italian island of Lampedusa in recent weeks putting a heavy strain on Italy's immigration infrastructure.

US President Barack Obama, on a visit to Brazil, said he had given the green light for the operation, which is codenamed "Odyssey Dawn."

"Today, I authorised the armed forces of the United States to begin a limited military action in Libya," Obama said in Brasilia.

But with nearly 100,000 US troops fighting a protracted war in Afghanistan -- and with Saturday's missile strikes coming eight years to the day after the United States launched its war in Iraq -- Obama made clear that operation "Odyssey Dawn" would not send US troops to Libya.

"As I said yesterday, we will not -- I repeat -- we will not deploy any US troops on the ground," he said.

The first Tomahawk missile struck at 1900 GMT on Saturday following air strikes carried out earlier by French warplanes, Admiral William Gortney, director of the US joint staff, said in Washington.

"It's a first phase of a multi-phase operation" to enforce the UN resolution and prevent the Libyan regime from using force "against its own people," he said.

One British submarine joined with other US ships and submarines in the missile attacks, he said.

The first strikes took place near Libya's coast, notably around Tripoli and Misrata, "because that's where the integrated missile defence systems are."

The targets included surface-to-air missile sites but it was too early to say how effective the Tomahawk strikes were, he said.

"Because it is night over there, it will be some time before we have a complete picture of the success of these strikes," the admiral said.

Russia's foreign ministry expressed regret over the attacks under a Security Council Resolution 1973 which was "adopted in haste," while the African Union, which opposed military action, aims to send a delegation to Tripoli on Sunday.

But British Prime Minister David Cameron said he held Gaddafi responsible for the situation in his country and that "the time for action" by the international community had come.

"Colonel Gaddafi has made this happen. He has lied to the international community, he has promised a ceasefire, he has broken that ceasefire. He continues to brutalise his own people," Cameron told British television.

In the rebel camp, celebratory gunfire and honking of car horns broke out in Al-Marj, 100 kilometres (60 miles) from Benghazi, to welcome the start of military operations against Gaddafi, correspondents said.

Thousands earlier Saturday fled Benghazi as Gaddafi loyalists pounded the eastern city, the rebels' stronghold, with shells and tank fire after two early morning air strikes.

Since Friday, the Libyan government has insisted it was observing a self-declared ceasefire. It said its armed forces had come under attack on Saturday west of Benghazi, including by rebel aircraft, and had responded in self-defence.

But the rebels, who have been trying to overthrow the Libyan leader for more than a month, said government troops had continued to bombard cities, violating the ceasefire continuously.

Gaddafi's ceasefire may split the coalition – and Libya
Turkey has got its wish for a ceasefire. But if it holds, it will allow Gaddafi to keep control of the major oil ports he has won back

http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentisfree ... -oil-ports

It is the calculation of a man who, contrary to popular opinion is not mad, but behaving quite rationally. It is the move of a man who is trying to counter the threat of a foreign military intervention by splitting the coalition before it has really had time to gather in Paris on Saturday.

Kā modernās Krievijas politikas pētnieks es domāju, ka šis karš ir īsta dāvana Krievijai. 49% ieņēmumi nāk no naftas cenām, kas tagad pateicoties karam Lībijā ir strauji pacēlušās.

Tas uz kādu laiku ļaus Kremļa režīmam noturēties, pietam mēs jau nezinām kas var notikt Saūda Arābijā ja tur sāksies nemieri. Tādēļ Krievijas faktoru mēs atkal sāksim izjust.
