UN Security Council Condemns Attacks on Libyan Civilians

The United Nations Security Council today condemned the Libyan regime’s use of violence against protesters, as the nation’s deputy ambassador reported a new wave of attacks in the western region by forces loyal to leader Muammar Qaddafi.

“The members of the Security Council condemned the violence and use of force against civilians, and deplored the repression against peaceful demonstrators,” Ambassador Maria Viotti of Brazil, which holds the rotating presidency of the Security Council this month, told reporters.
