UN Human Rights Council Orders Inquiry Into Violence in Libya

The United Nations Human Rights Council  today strongly condemned the recent violence in Libya and ordered an international  inquiry into alleged abuses.  In a resolution adopted unanimously at the  end of a special session held in Geneva, the 47-member Council also called on the Libyan Government to meet its  responsibility to protect its population, immediately end all human rights  violations, stop any attacks against civilians, and respect the popular will,  aspirations and demands of its people.
