Updated On: Mar 29, 2011
World leaders will gather today in London to plan ways to put pressure on Qaddafi.
More than 40 foreign ministers and representatives from regional groups will attend the conference, including U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, Chairman of the African Union Jean Ping and U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
The group will look for ways to strengthen the U.N. Security Council resolution approved on March 17 that created a no-fly zone above Libya and mandated the protection of civilians. They will also search for urgent ways to get humanitarian aid to war-torn cities like Misrata.
On Sunday, NATO formally approved plans to take control of enforcing the U.N. Security Council resolution. The coalition enforcing the resolution has been led by the United States, the United Kingdom and France.
