'Full solidarity' with Libya rebel govt: Arab League chief

Arab League chief Nabil al-Arabi declared on Monday his "full solidarity" with the Libyan rebel government as its fighters closed in on Moamer Khadafi's Tripoli compound.

Arabi, in a statement expressed "his full solidarity with the ongoing efforts by the National Transitional Council" and "wished success for the council in leading a new era and preserving Libya's regional integrity and its sovereignty and independence."

The pan-Arab Cairo-based organisation call for a Libyan no-fly zone in March opened the way for NATO air strikes that tipped the balance in the rebels' favour.
