"The Libyan government on Tuesday firmly rebuffed a proposal from the European Union, saying it would fight any foreign troops that landed on its soil, even if they were supposedly there to escort humanitarian aid convoys. The European Union has outlined a provisional plan that could include sending European troops to the besieged Libyan city of Misurata to protect aid deliveries if requested by the United Nations, although U.N. officials say they want to explore civilian options first."
