Increases death toll in clashes in Libya

The death toll from clashes between forces loyal to Muammar Gadhafi and the rebels who control Misrata rose to 31, a doctor at the hospital in the city Hekma. The doctor said that more than 110 people were wounded after battles between rebels and forces loyal fighters on the outskirts of the city. Gadhafi forces also bombed the city, an insurgent stronghold in western Libya.

Meanwhile, the United States accused some NATO allies do not share the weight of the campaign against the forces of the Libyan head of state. After investigations by the International Criminal Court presented to the UN, where Gadhafi is shown to be responsible for a policy of sexual abuse of their opponents, the Turkish Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan said his country had offered a "guarantee" to Gadhafi when Libya abandoned, but Ankara is not answered.

"Gadhafi has no choice but to leave Libya, through the guarantees were given." Besides these facts, it transpired that the Libyan leader wrote a letter to Congress, which welcomes the criticism from lawmakers against U.S. involvement in the operation in the Arab country. The letter notes that the colonel is "very interesting" discussions on Capitol Hill about the U.S.

involvement in the military operation.
