Libya unrest - 2011-02-28

  1. 2. Monday 2011-february 28 Gaddafi: 'All my people love me‘ ' Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi tells the BBC he is loved by all his people and denies there have been any protests in the capital, Tripoli. ". On Saturday, the United Nations Security Council voted unanimously to adopt a resolution imposing international sanctions on Libya, including an arms embargo, asset freezes and travel bans. Resolution 1970 also referred the situation in the country to the International Criminal Court (ICC) - and marks the first time that the US has ever voted in favour of such a move. This comes after more than 10 days of protests in Libya, which have been met with violence by forces loyal to Muammar Gaddafi, the country's leader. Speaking after the vote, Ibrahim Debbashi, Libya's deputy ambassador to the UN, said that at least 2,000 people had been killed and added that the newly passed resolution would target all those responsible, including members of the Libyan leader's family. Col Muammar Gaddafi denies there is any fighting on the streets of Tripoli Libyan leader Col Muammar Gaddafi has told the BBC he is loved by all his people and has denied there have been any protests in Tripoli. Col Gaddafi said that his people would die to protect him. He laughed at the suggestion he would leave Libya and said that he felt betrayed by the world leaders who had urged him to quit. US ambassador to the UN Susan Rice said the interview showed Col Gaddafi was "delusional" and "unfit to lead". World foreign ministers earlier condemned attacks on Libyan civilians and the European Union imposed sanctions including an arms embargo, asset freeze and travel ban on Col Gaddafi and his close entourage. Col Gaddafi is facing a massive challenge to his 41-year rule, with protesters in control of towns in the east.
