    Turkey sets up US$100 million fund to help Libya rebels

    Turkey has established a US$100 million fund to support Libya’s rebel Transitional National Council, Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu said on Thursday.

    “There is a real need for humanitarian access as well as for the natural needs of Libya like schools, hospitals and all those facilities,” Davutoglu said.

    Davutoglu was speaking to reporters at a summit of Western and Arab countries backing Libya’s rebels and aimed at preparing for a political structure after the departure of leader Muammar Gaddafi from power.
