UN chief condemns ongoing use of force in western Libya

23 March 2011 – Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon today condemned the continued use of force in western Libya, where Government troops have been engaged in fighting with the opposition movement that emerged from public protests against the regime of Muammar al-Qadhafi.
Mr. Ban, in a statement issued by his spokesperson, deplored the use of force in that part of Libya, including in the towns of Zintan and Misrata.

“He reiterates his call for an immediate end to violence by all parties, in accordance with Security Council resolutions 1970 and 1973, and for the responsibility to protect civilians,” the statement noted.
