03 : 47 PM - 26/05/2011
Deauville, May 26 (BNA) -- World leaders are gathering in the French resort of Deauville for a summit of the G8 bloc of wealthy nations.

The leaders are expected to discuss how to end the seemingly deadlocked Libya conflict, and their response to the revolutions in Egypt and Tunisia.

Correspondents say recent events such as uprisings in the Arab world and Japan's nuclear crisis have given the G8 a new sense of purpose.

Also on the agenda is how little or how much the internet should be regulated.
