More than 10 000 have lost their lives in the ongoing conflict in Libya, according to Italy's Foreign Minister, Franco Fratini.

Some 50 000 people have injured during the confrontation between rebels and strongman Muammar Gaddafi's troops, Fratini said after talks in Rome with Libyan rebel leader and former Minister of Justice Mustafa Abdel Jalil.

Italy will host talks next month on allowing foreign oil sales from eastern Libya and could provide Libyan rebels with night-vision kit and radars, Fratini also announced.

Tuesday marks one month since France and Britain launched the first air strikes on the North African country in order to establish a no-fly zone over it.
