"Renewed diplomatic efforts to halt the country’s civil war appeared to be gaining momentum Thursday as thunderous NATO airstrikes once again hammered Moammar Gadhafi’s stronghold of Tripoli. Officials in the capital say they are open to international efforts that would bring an end to four months of fighting between forces loyal to the longtime leader and rebels who control the eastern third of the country along with pockets in the west. But they insist that Gadhafi will not bow to international pressure to push him aside." (06/16/11)
