No-fly build-up focuses on Malta

Military preparations for possible intervention in Libya centres on Mediterranean island.

    Some Libyan rebel groups have called for limited military assistance, such as targeted air strikes.

    However, one US senator has said direct military intervention would be counter-productive. John Kerry said the international community should prepare a no-fly zone, in the event of a massacre of civilians by the Libyan air force.

    Much of the military equipment needed to enforce a no-fly zone is already based on the Mediterranean island of Malta.
