LONDON (Reuters)- Turkish Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan said on Thursday he did not support the idea of arming Libyan rebels fighting to oust Muammar Gaddafi from power.

“Doing that would create a different situation in Libya and we do not find it appropriate to do that,” Erdogan told reporters at a joint press conference with British Prime Minister David Cameron in London.
