Breaking News! After the US imposed sanctions on Libyan government, the United Nations General Assembly hassuspended the country from its Human Rights Council for the continuous attacks by Colonel Muammar Gaddafi on pro-democracy protesters.

Concerning over the human rights situation in the political and social unrest Libya, the UN decided to suspend the rights of Libyan members in the Human Rights Council. For the first time the UN has suspended a country from the General Assembly of the Human Rights Council.

U.S. Ambassador Susan Rice said that the move is a big blow to 41-year rule of Gaddafi. The leader must step down as his regime has failed to protect his own citizens in the country. 

As the Libyan strongman Gaddafi seems adamant saying his people love him and neither he will quit the power nor the country, the anti-government protesters are being killed brutally. The situation is getting worst day by day in the country.

Last week, the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva had decided to suspend Libya’s membership from the 47-nation body in the wake of human right violations in Gaddafi's regime.

Along with the US, the UK has also banned the assets belonging to Gaddafi, his family and his loyalists in the country condemning the attacks on the protesters.
