GODOLLO (AP)– The European Union's foreign policy chief says she will go to Cairo to meet with leaders of the Arab League to discuss the situation in Libya.

Following a meeting of the EU foreign ministers, Catherine Ashton said she would fly to Cairo on Sunday.
Ashton said Saturday she would discuss a “collaborative approach” with Arab League Secretary-General Amr Moussa on Libya and the rest of the region. The Arab League was meeting Saturday in Cairo, with discussions about the possible imposition of a no-fly zone over Libya on the agenda.
Ashton said it was necessary to evaluate how effective sanctions imposed on Moammar Gadhafi's regime had been so far and that she was “keeping all options moving forward” regarding any additional measures.
