The UN chief says that the international campaign to enforce a no-fly zone over Libya must continue until Moammar Gadhafi stops military action against his own people.
U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon says that "until he stops, I think that this military operation to enforce a no-fly zone will have to continue."
Ban spoke during a visit Tuesday with post-revolutionary leaders in Tunisia, Libya's neighbor.
Ban said that the military operation by an international coalition is neither interference in Libya's internal affairs nor "occupation by foreign forces." It is "simply protecting the civilian population."
He added that "the first and foremost thing should come from Col. Gadhafi. He must stop killing his own people."
