BRUSSELS, July 6: Nato says time is running out for Muammar Qadhafi as opposition forces advance, air strikes continue to inflict losses and regime officials flee.

Secretary-General Anders Fogh Rasmussen said on Wednesday the alliance had destroyed 2,700 “legitimate military targets” since the campaign began in March. This includes 600 tanks and artillery pieces and 800 ammunition stores.

Still, Fogh Rasmussen warns that Qadhafi's forces remain a threat, saying that “without Nato there would be a massacre.” —AP
