Venezuela’s Chavez condemns Libya airstrikes

Venezuela’s President Hugo Chavez demands an end to the international military operation in Libya where he says the US and its European partners are pursuing their own goals. 

The military intervention in Libya came on Saturday following an emergency summit in Paris called by President Nicolas Sarkozy.  The western warplanes and missiles are targeting Col. Gaddafi’s forces outside the rebel-held eastern city of Benghazi.

Meanwhile, Libyan state television reports massive airstrikes on civilian installations in Tripoli, Misrata, Benghazi and Zawiya.
