There are signs that Britain and France might get the extra Nato resources they have needed to bomb Libya.
At a meeting in Berlin today the two countries have been lobbying other allies to do more in the campaign against Muammar Gaddafi.
Nato Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen said: “Nato is absolutely determined to continue its operations as long as there is a threat against Libyan civilians. And it’s impossible to imagine that that threat will disappear with Gaddafi in power.”
Rasmussen said he had indications that allies would provide extra strike aircraft needed for the operation in Libya.
Not all Nato countries agree.
Spain has said no and so has Italy.
