Thanks Carmen, couldn"t open the link for some reason, but no matter now the rugny"s over I"ll switch over to Sky News.

Gadaffi still has a lot of supporters in Libya and there have been many questions on how do we get out of this. The cost of using Aircraft and Pilots
is astronomical especially when Britain is in such a parlous state financially.

Mohammad Nabbous, face of citizen journalism in Libya, is killed
Mohammad Nabbous, who set up an independent internet TV station in Benghazi, has been killed


The death has been announced of Mohammad Nabbous, described as the "face of citizen journalism in Libya".

Nabbous was apparently shot dead by Gaddafi forces in Benghazi on Saturday.

Known as "Mo", Nabbous set up Libya al-Hurra TV, which broadcast raw feeds and commentary from Benghazi, on Livestream.

Andy Carvin, social media strategist at NPR, said on Twitter: "Mohammad Nabbous was my primary contact in Libya, and the face of Libyan citizen journalism. And now he's dead, killed in a firefight."

Sharon Lynch, TV station representative, said: "He touched the hearts of many with his bravery and indomnitable spirit. He will be dearly missed and leaves behind his young wife and unborn child."

Reuters reports that no major coalition strikes have been initially planned around the opposition stronghold of Benghazi.

Operations in the first phase are currently aimed at degrading the Libyan government's air defences.

News conference in Tripoli conference by #Libyan Secretary-General for People's Committee Mohammed Bilqassim Al-Zwai starting soon.

"I'm sorry my country is facing a barbaric and armed attack tonight. some western countries are leading a rocket atack on several locations in Tripoli and Misrati - attack that causes real harm to civilians. this attack comes as we announced a ceasefire against the al qaeda militants. this has come as Libya has announced major reforms in economic and adminsitrative context. this claim the operation is for the protection of civlians is contradicted by what has happened on the ground tonight. no. of civlians hurt tonight - filling up our hospitals and ambulances as they try to save civilians. we have stopped all military operations aginst the armed militias and we requested international observers on the ground. this agression will not weaken our spirit and will not mean Libyans handing over power to militants linked to al qaeda. What you have seen of the masses of people gathering, proclaiming their allegiance to the leader of #Libya. Describing the UN #Libya resolution as invalid does not mean we will not honour it. We have requested UN observers be sent. The locations that were targets were military & civilian. I don't know their names, they were civilian buildings #Libya.

A madman speaks!

MOD PRESS STATEMENT

The Chief of Defence Staff’s Strategic Communications Officer Major General John Lorimer said:

“British Armed Forces, as authorised by the UN Security Council Resolution 1973, have participated in a co-ordinated strike against Libyan Air Defence systems. In addition to the Tomahawk Land Attack Missiles (TLAM) launched from a Trafalgar Class submarine, I can now confirm that the RAF has also launched Stormshadow missiles from a number of Tornado GR4 fast jets, which flew direct from RAF Marham as part of a coordinated coalition plan to enforce the resolution.”

Defence Secretary Dr Liam Fox said:

“We made clear that if Gaddafi did not comply with the UN Security Council Resolution 1973, it would be enforced through military action. Our Armed Forces have therefore participated in a co-ordinated international coalition strike against key military installations.

“We have launched Tomahawk Land Attack Missiles from a Trafalgar Class submarine and Stormshadow missiles from Tornado GR4s. The fast jets flew 3,000 miles from RAF Marham and back making this the longest range bombing mission conducted by the RAF since the Falklands conflict. This operation was supported by VC10 and Tristar air-to-air refuelling aircraft as well as E3D Sentry and Sentinel surveillance aircraft.

“HMS Westminster is off the coast of Libya and HMS Cumberland is in the region ready to support operations. Typhoon aircraft are also standing by to provide support.

“Our capable and adaptable Armed Forces are once again displaying their courage and professionalism. This action has provided a strong signal - the International community will not stand by while the Libyan people suffer under the Gaddafi regime.”

Mohammed Nabbous 1983-2011



Today we received the news that Mohammed Nabbous, a citizen media activist and one of the great figures of the February 17th youth revolutionary movement, was killed by a Qadaffi sniper while covering the first hours of fighting in Benghazi. His death represents a terrible loss for the movement and for the future of Libya.

We met Nabbous briefly, soon after arriving in Benghazi. As a leader and a member of the Transitional National Council, he gathered a progressive group of activists around him and organized the institution known as the February 17th Revolution Youth Media Center. In that grimy warren of hallways and former interrogation cells, reclaimed from the regime and plastered floor to ceiling with graffiti slogans and cartoons, his name was intoned gravely, even reverently.

In the early days of the rebellion, when regime reprisals were still a possibility for dissenters and fear was widespread, Nabbous single-handedly built a megaphone to the outside world— part television studio, internet relay, and command and control center, streaming images from Benghazi’s Tahrir Square 24 hours a day.

His bravery inspired others to work to give the revolution a voice, and they turned to him constantly for direction; his cell phone rang perpetually. One look could tell you he got very little sleep, if any, in the constant manic flurry of activity required to carry the revolution’s message forward. Despite this he found the time to address our needs, and thank us with deep sincerity for coming to Libya.

He cut a striking figure, tall and suave with a British accent acquired at Oxford, where he studied engineering, and spoke with quickfire brilliance. His was a singular dedication to the revolution and a better future for his country, for which he gave his life, and we mourn him.

He leaves a young, pregnant, wife.
