TRIPOLI, Libya — French President Nicolas Sarkozy has promised to support Libya's new rulers, saying Moammar Gadhafi will be brought to justice but urging Libyans to avoid "vengeance."

Sarkozy has made the comments at a press conference alongside British Prime Minister David Cameron, who on Thursday became the first world leaders to travel to Libya since revolutionary forces seized the capital and ousted Gadhafi. Both countries led international support for the rebellion.

Sarkozy says Libyans should "preserve unity" and "seek reconciliation" within its people, urging "no vengeance, no retaliation."
