Arab League Backtracks on Support For Libya Intervention

They’re calling backsies:

A coordinated attack by Western forces targeting Libyan air capabilities and armor appears to have succeeded in damaging Libyan military installations and armor, but Arab support for the no-fly zone may be waning.

Arab League head Amr Moussa told reporters Sunday that the Arab league thought the use of force was excessive following an overnight bombing campaign that Libya claims killed at least 48 people.

“What we want is civilians’ protection, not shelling more civilians,” he was quoted saying by the Associated Press.


Not sure what’s really happening here, but vocal support from the Arab League was supposed to make this different from other western military strikes on Arab countries.
