Libyan crown prince urges no-fly zone, air strikes

DUBAI, March 9 (Reuters) - Libyan exiled Crown Prince Mohammed El Senussi asked for a no-fly zone over Libya and strikes against Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi’s air defences on Wednesday but did not support foreign troops on the ground.

“I am speaking for all Libyans when I ask for a no-fly zone and targeted air strikes on Gaddafi’s air defences although it would be wrong for (there to be) troops on the ground and the people of Libya do not want it,” he said in a statement from London.
