Rebel-held territory has again come under sustained attack from government forces in Libya. There are reports this morning that air strikes on the oil town of Ras Lanuf have killed dozens of people. NATO is considering military options in response to that situation. And Britain and France are working on a resolution for a no-fly zone to put to the UN Security Council. 
 
Former French President Jacques Chirac has gone on trial on corruption2 charges. He's accused of using public funds to create fake jobs for political associates while he was mayor of Paris between 1977 and 1995.
