EU wants Gaddafi to go!!!

Leaders of the EU’s 27 member states have said Libya’s Col Muammar Gaddafi must surrender power.

The EU is holding an emergency summit in Brussels in the hope of finding a common approach to the political and humanitarian crisis.

France has urged other states to follow it in recognising the rebel’s interim council, but has so far failed to gain wider support.

The summit comes as forces loyal to Col Gaddafi make major gains.

Western journalists in the city of Zawiya, west of Tripoli, have confirmed the Gaddafi regime’s claims that the city has fallen after days of bombardment.

Rebels are also reported to have fled from the oil port of Ras Lanuf to the east, which they had held for several days.
