Libyans might face international justice: France
France has been pushing for EU sanctions against Moammar Gadhafi`s regime.
Paris: France says Libya`s regime might have to face international justice for its brutal crackdown on protesters.
France has been pushing for European Union sanctions against Moammar Gadhafi`s regime. The French Foreign Ministry says the fierce crackdown "may constitute crimes against humanity."
The ministry said Thursday in a statement that "all options should be studied, including bringing the case before the international justice system."
French Defense Minister Alain Juppe says it is also worth considering the creation of a no-fly zone over Libya. But he says the option of a foreign military intervention is not currently on the table.
Juppe says he strongly hopes that "Gaddafi is in his final moments as chief of state."
