EU-Libyan relations 'under threat'

Ongoing violence in Libya may put a damper on economic relations between Europe and Gaddafi.

    The crackdown in oil-rich Libya is shaping up to be the most brutal repression of anti-government protests that began with uprisings in Tunisia and Egypt.

    In recent years, European countries have been cultivating a relationship with Moammar Gaddafi, the leader of Libya, for business reasons. Now, countries like France and the United Kingdom have condemned the violence in Libya, a development that could force European leaders to rethink their relations with the North African country.
