WASHINGTON - President Barack Obama says the U.S. will help its allies enforce a no-fly zone over parts of Libya if Moammar Gadhafi does not immediately cease military actions against rebels.

Obama said the U.S. would not send ground forces to Libya.

He told reporters at the White House that thousands of Libyans could die if Gadhafi is not forced to pull his troops back from rebel strongholds. He said humanitarian aid must reach those in need.
