France's Sarkozy says Gaddafi must go

ANKARA (Reuters) - French President Nicolas Sarkozy said on Friday Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi had to leave but cautioned against military action in the North African state.

“Mr Gaddafi must leave,” Sarkozy told a news conference with his Turkish counterpart Abdullah Gul.

“Regarding a military intervention ... France would consider any initiative of this type with extreme caution and reserve,” he said.
