France and Italy have said they are to send small teams of military officers to advise Libyan rebels who are seeking to topple Col Muammar Gaddafi.
French officials said fewer than 10 would be sent, while Italy’s defence minister announced that 10 would go.
The UK said on Tuesday it was sending a similar team to the city of Benghazi.
Meanwhile, the UN has said the reported use of cluster munitions by Col Gaddafi’s forces in the city of Misrata “could amount to international crimes”.
