'Not acceptable' for Gaddafi to stay in Libya

Colonel Gaddafi could stay in Libya as long as he steps down from power, according to Nato powers.

Former foreign secretary Sir Malcolm Rifkind explains the importance of avoiding "a blood bath in Tripoli".

Soliman Albrassi, a Libyan political activist based in London, gives his view that allowing Gaddafi to stay would lead to "civil war" in the future.

And Tripoli correspondent James Reynolds reports on the territory and followers that Gaddafi "still commands".
