Clinton says gratified by House Libya vote

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Friday praised the House of Representatives for rejecting a move to bar funding for U.S. military strike missions against Libya, saying it was important to keep up pressure on Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi.

"We are gratified that the House has decisively rejected efforts to limit funding for the Libyan mission," Clinton told reporters.
