Rebels in Libya fighting against Moammar Gadhafi say they need the international community to give them $1.5 billion — for medicine, salaries and the like. Senior officials from a number of countries and international organizations are meeting in Rome today (May 5) to try to drum up money for the rebels.
Some people say Gadhafi cannot be removed by air power alone, and Libyan civilians will not be safe as long as he remains. Others say the international community should not be taking sides in an internal conflict, and they fear the money could be used to buy arms, despite a U.N. arms embargo on the country as a whole.
