U.S. officials say Libya could descend into civil war unless Muammar Qaddafi quits, but the Libyan leader insists his people still love him and he's not leaving.

Rebel forces aren't backing down in their fight for control of the country.

U.S. Secretary of State Hilary Clinton says the U.S. must lead the international response to the ending the crisis.

U.S. warships are en route and allies are discussing military options to prevent Qaddafi from bombing his own people, an act his son denies.

The United Nations says more than 140,000 refugees are trying to flee. This afternoon, the UN voted to suspend Libya from its human rights council.
