PARIS (Reuters) - A U.S. official said on Saturday as Western and Arab leaders met in Paris to discuss air strikes on Libya that violence against civilians there was continuing and would influence what steps foreign powers now took.

It "obviously has an impact" on the next steps by the international community, said the U.S. official.
