Britain and France are drafting a U.N. resolution that would establish a no-fly zone in Libya.
British Foreign Secretary William Hague told the House of Commons Monday that Britain is "working closely with partners on a contingency basis on elements of a resolution on a no-fly zone."
A British diplomat at the U.N. stressed that the draft resolution is being prepared in case it is needed but no decision has been made to introduce it at the Security Council. He spoke on condition of anonymity because the draft has not been made public.
Rebel fighters have urged establishment of a no-fly zone, saying they can take on Moammar Gadhafi's elite ground forces, but are outgunned if he uses his air power.
