Libya in holding pattern?

Early reports indicated British and French war planes would be over Libyan skies as early as Friday morning, but the BBC is now saying: "Downing Street have cautioned against earlier suggestions that British planes could be in action 'within hours' and declined to put a timetable on it."

Meanwhile, the Times of India reports Gaddafi is calling for a truce in the face of the developing united front against him. The Times continues: "The international debate on what action to take may have dragged on too long to help the anti-Gaddafi uprising, now struggling to hold its ground one month after it started."

The rebels are celebrating on the streets of Benghazi, however.
