The White House is moving ahead with sanctions on Libya, where more people are reported dead from a crackdown on anti-government protesters in Tripoli. Spokesman Jay Carney says the US is finalizing1 the sanctions process today.

"The United States is involved in ongoing2 negotiations3 today at the UNSC, the UN Security Council, on a resolution that could include a weapons embargo4, individual sanctions against key Libyan officials and an asset freeze."

US embassy operations in Libya are suspended. Meanwhile, a ferry that departed Tripoli earlier today after delay because of rough seas is pulling into a port in Malta. The vessel5 is carrying some 300 people. More than half of whom are Americans escaping the unrest. More Americans and other foreigners are also on a US-chartered flight that also left Tripoli today.

As foreigners scrambled6 to get out of Libya, Colonel Muammar Gaddafi addressed supporters in Tripoli Central Square, calling on them to fight anyone including foreign powers, who he says are attempting to topple his regime.

"We will defeat any foreign attempts as we defeated the former Italian imperialism7."

Gaddafi is heard through an interpreter on Al-Jazeera English. In eastern Libya, NPR's Lourdes Garcia-Navarro says people are celebrating the control of the city of Benghazi by the opposition8.

There are thousands of people that have converged9 here, first to pray and then to protest. This is, of course, the Muslim holy day, and a message they say here is to Muammar Gaddafi, who is still clinging the power in the west of the country. All of the east is pretty much under the control of the protesters. There's a real feeling of solidarity10 here. They don't want this country to be split. They want a unified11 Libya, free and democratic.

Jordan is reporting massive protests. Police estimates today's pro-democracy demonstrations12 drew thousands of people, the largest turnout in eight weeks. From Amman, Dale Gavlak reports security forces were out in large numbers in an attempt to avoid a repeat of last week's violent confrontations13.

Calling for lower prices and changes to the constitution which give King Abdullah absolute say, ordinary Jodanians, such as unemployed14 Amer Warat, had joined the activists15.

"The authorities of the king himself — though they have been changed a lot, say, 180 degrees. So, we're coming peacefully just to ask for these changes. We want our rights. That's all."

Inspired by Tunisia and Egypt , Jordanians are asking to be able to elect their prime minister and cabinet officials and enjoy a greater political say. For NPR News, I'm Dale Gavlak in Amman.

Angry protests today over deepening poverty in Iraq are claiming more lives. At least 14 people have been killed, and dozens injured in fighting between demonstrators and security forces across Iraq.

The sharp jump in the cost of petroleum16 is triggering emergency measures in Spain. The Spanish government says it will lower speed limits and cut train ticket prices. The deputy prime minister says there's no threat to Spain's energy supply, but the country's anticipating higher energy costs as a result of the unrest in Libya. The temporary measures are expected to take effect March 7th.

In an unusual open letter posted on its website, Chinese telecom equipment maker17 Huawei is inviting18 a US investigation19. From Shanghai, NPR's Rob Gifford reports the company wants to dispel20 what it says is a mistaken fear that it's a threat to American national security.

Huawei Technologies last week announced that it was giving up its attempted purchase of American computer company 3Leaf Systems after it failed to win approval from a US security panel. That failure has prompted Huawei Deputy Chairman Ken21 Hu to write the open letter. In it, he rejects what he calls "untrue allegations" that Huawei has ties to China's military, receives improper22 Chinese government financial support or is a threat to American national security. Huawei Technologies is one of the world's largest makers23 of network switching gear and reported sales of $28 billions last year, but it did struggle to gain a foothold in the US market. Rob Gifford, NPR News, Shanghai.
