Libya to rejoin Human Rights Council

The United Nations General Assembly voted today to readmit Libya to the Human Rights Council. Libya's membership was suspended on March 1 of this year due to Qadhafi's violent suppression of the opposition movement. The UN welcomed the commitment of the new government to human rights and the rule of law. The vote was 123 in favor; six opposed; and four abstentions.
