Libya Crisis: What Happens Next?

Ad Feedback

The international campaign to create a no-fly zone over Libya are giving rebels some much needed assistance in their fight against dictator Moammar Gadhafi.

Gadhafi's forces continued an artillery barrage against rebels regrouping in the dunes outside a key eastern city on Tuesday. Pro-government snipers and tanks also roamed the last major opposition-held city in the west.

Officials say three days of air strikes over the North African country appear to have hobbled Gadhafi's air defenses and rescued the rebels from impending defeat.

However, the opposition force has struggled to exploit the international alliance's efforts on their behalf. The U.N. coalition has had some partners leave as officials struggle to articulate an endgame.
