UN Council Slaps Sanctions on Libya's Gadhafi

Saturday, 26 February 2011 08:40 PM EST

UNITED NATIONS (AP) — The U.N. Security Council has voted unanimously to impose sanctions on Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi, his five adult children and top associates.

Voting after a day of discussions — interrupted at times for consultations with home capitals — council members agreed on Saturday to freeze the assets of Gadhafi, his four sons and one daughter, and to ban travel by the whole family plus 10 close associates.

The day was consumed mainly with haggling behind closed doors over language to refer Libya's violent crackdown on protesters to the International Criminal Court for investigation of possible crimes against humanity.

All 15 nations on the council ultimately approved referring the case to the permanent war crimes tribunal.
