Libya's ambassador to India resigns amid bloodshed

Libya's ambassador to India has resigned his post and is calling on the international community to stop the violent government crackdown against protesters in his country.

Ali al-Essawi told The Associated Press on Tuesday that he resigned because he could not tolerate the violence his government was using against Libyan civilians.

He said: "The authorities are killing peaceful people, which is not acceptable. We have to stop the bloodshed. It's the responsibility of the international community to stop the bloodshed."
