Arab leader urges talks with Gaddafi

The outgoing head of the Arab League has expressed doubts about the bombing campaign to depose Colonel Muammar Gaddafi in Libya after civilians were killed in two separate air strikes this week.

Amr Moussa, a leading candidate to be Egypt's next president, said there should be a ceasefire and peace talks while Gaddafi remained in power.

"When I see children being killed, I must have misgivings. Now is the time to do whatever we can to reach a political solution," he said. (© Daily Telegraph, London)
