Libyan Opposition Groups Strategize Gadhafi's Ouster

Hundreds of Libyan opposition members have concluded a two-day conference in London to discuss strategies for ousting Moammar Gadhafi from power.

The opposition leaders are calling on the United Nations to push for regime change in Libya and for the restoration of Libya's constitution.

The leaders said Sunday they intend to form a provisional government that would last no longer than one year, then launch a democratic constitutional government built on cultural pluralism and a rotating presidency.

The United States re-established limited diplomatic ties with Libya last year after Colonel Gadhafi announced Tripoli would abandon its chemical and nuclear weapons programs. Colonel Gadhafi seized power during a 1969 political coup.
