The United Nations Security Council is meeting in New York today to discuss imposing international sanctions, including an arms embargo, an asset freeze, and a travel ban, against Muammar Qaddafi, his relatives, and key members of his government. The meeting comes one day after the U.S. closed its embassy in Tripoli and imposed unilateral sanctions against Libya, freezing the American-held assets of Qaddafi, his children and family, and senior members of the Libyan government. Diplomats from the U.S., France, Germany, and Britain circulated a draft resolution that also calls for the violent crackdown against protesters in Libya to be referred to the International Criminal Court, which investigates crimes against humanity. “It’s clear that Colonel Qaddafi has lost the confidence of his people,” noted White House press secretary Jay Carney. “His legitimacy has been reduced to zero.”
