Gaddafi, Saleh Urged to Give Up Power

Al-Dekbas on Sunday called on Libyan ruler Muammar Gaddafi and Yemeni President Ali Abdullah Saleh to step down quickly to avoid humanitarian catastrophes and save the lives of countless civilians -- innocent men, women and children, Egypt's al-Sharq al-Awsat news agency reported.

He stressed that weapons will not kill the public resolve for economic and political reforms in their countries.

The remarks come as more than 6,000 people have been killed since the revolution against the government of Muammar Gaddafi erupted in mid February.

According to US military officials, more than 350 aircraft are participating in the US-led campaign of military airstrikes against Libya to protect civilians from Libyan regime's attacks.

Apart from the United States, twelve countries from the European Union are taking part in Operation Odyssey Dawn, which began on March 19 after the UN Security Council imposed a no-fly zone over troubled Libya to "protect civilians" from Gaddafi's attacks.

The rising civilian death toll in Libya has set off a frenzy of speculations about the real motive behind the war in the country, with many analysts saying that under the guise of protecting civilians, as enshrined in the UN Security Council resolution 1973, Washington and its Western allies are basically after the North African country's vast oil reserves.

Meanwhile, dozens of Yemenis have been killed and hundreds more have been injured in a brutal crackdown by state security forces. Protests began to sweep Yemen in January.

President Saleh has been in office for more than three decades, with several opposition members arguing that his long-promised reforms have not materialized.

There are concerns that intermittent skirmishes between anti-government demonstrators and forces loyal to embattled Ali Abdullah Saleh could eventually spiral out of control and trigger a large-scale violence.
