Turkey’s PM Erdogan urges Col Muammar Gaddafi to quit

Turkey’s Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan has called for Libyan leader Col Muammar Gaddafi to step down “for the sake of the country’s future”.

Mr Erdogan said the Libyan leader had ignored the wishes of his people by using force against them.

Correspondents say it is a marked change in Turkish policy towards Libya, with Mr Erdogan previously having taken a more conciliatory approach.

Col Gaddafi’s troops have been fighting rebel forces for several weeks.

Turkey has temporarily closed its Tripoli embassy and withdrawn its employees, although it is keeping an embassy open in rebel-held Benghazi.
