Libya says world should help Syrians gain freedom


UNITED NATIONS (AP) -- Libya's prime minister says the world should help the Syrian people obtain their freedom.

Abdurrahim el-Keib said the situation in Syria "is definitely analogous" to last year's uprising in Libya, which received help from NATO to help protect civilians.

But he said Libya can't tell the international community what to do to help Syria.

El-Keib said Libya was supporting and financially helping Syria's opposition and he called on the international community to investigate what it can do to help.

The prime minister spoke at the International Peace Institute Wednesday before addressing the U.N. Security Council.
