WASHINGTON, March 18 (Reuters) - U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will travel to Paris to attend an international meeting on Saturday on Libya's crisis, President Barack Obama announced on Friday.

Clinton will join key European leaders and U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon to discuss the next steps on Libya following the U.N. Security Council's adoption of a resolution permitting a "no fly zone" and other steps to protect rebels from the forces of leader Muammar Gaddafi.
