Most Brits believe military action in Libya too risky.

London, Mar. 22 (ANI): Some 53 percent of Britons taking part in a ComRes poll, for ITV News, feel it would be unacceptable for British soldiers to die fighting against the Gaddafi regime in Libya.

According to the Telegraph, more than one in three people, 35 per cent, agreed with the decision to take military action. But, according to the survey, 49 per cent of adults felt such intervention constituted an unnecessary risk for Britain.

ComRes interviewed 2,028 people online over the weekend. The findings were weighted to be demographically representative.

The survey shows that public support for intervention in Libya has strengthened since the enforcing of the no-fly zone.

A survey by Opinium Research, published two weeks ago, found that 59 per cent of people opposed sending British troops to Libya and 27 per cent were in favour. (ANI)
