French President Nicolas Sarkozy will propose air strikes in Libya to EU leaders, according to a source close to the discussions. Sarkozy will propose striking “an extremely limited number of points which are the source of the most deadly operations” by Moammar Gadhafi, the AFP reports. These include Gadhafi’s Bab al-Azizia command headquarters in Tripoli, and two military air bases. The president’s office declined to confirm the claim.
