Solution for refugees doubtful

Numerous foreign ministers were preoccupied with the situation in Libya at Monday's meeting of the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva, the liberal weekly Respekt notes: "The dictator's struggle to cling to power in the face of the revolution against him has driven Libya to the brink of a humanitarian crisis. While the rich West deployed airplanes to quickly evacuate its citizens thousands of refugees who had left their own poor countries to work in oil-rich Libya are gathering at the country's borders. Foreign ministers from across the world are now seeking a way to prevent the disaster from spreading. But it's doubtful that they'll find a solution. Gaddafi's seat may be wobbling but it is still supported by many barrels of oil which the energy-poor West depends on."
