Libya crisis: 'Race against time' for civilians

An international summit on Libya is under way in Qatar, with delegates hearing there is a "race against time" to help Libyan civilians.

Qatar's crown prince said that every day that passed meant more victims.

Rebels seeking to topple Col Gaddafi are making their first high-profile diplomatic appearance and will meet the newly formed "contact group" on Libya.

Giving the rebels military, political and financial support will all be discussed, as will Nato's role.

Ahead of the meeting, the French and British foreign ministers said Nato should be doing more in Libya.
