Libya Closes Airspace After Passage of UN Resolution

Muammar Gaddafi’s regime has officially closed Libyan airspace to international traffic following threats of a no fly zone from United Nations members.


The passage of a new UN resolution authorizes the international body to take “all necessary measures” short of invasion to protect Libyan civilians.


The resolution was the first step towards establishing a no-fly zone over Libya and ending the violence against Gaddafi dissenters.


Great Britain, France, and the United States are now officially planning a no-fly zone to prevent Gaddafi from continuing air strikes on his people.
