    European Union leaders have called for the current Libyan government to step down immediately at a summit in Brussels.

    The EU stopped short, however, of endorsing a no-fly zone or other military measures. Leaders say they have done a great deal in a short amount of time, in terms of imposing sanctions and putting in place humanitarian aid packages.
