Hillary Clinton 'Strongly' Condemns Violence in Libya

More

As the situation in Libya worsened Monday, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton issued her strongest statement yet on the escalating violence. Said Clinton:

The world is watching the situation in Libya with alarm. We join the international community in strongly condemning the violence in Libya. Our thoughts and prayers are with those whose lives have been lost, and with their loved ones. The government of Libya has a responsibility to respect the universal rights of the people, including the right to free expression and assembly. Now is the time to stop this unacceptable bloodshed. We are working urgently with friends and partners around the world to convey this message to the Libyan government.
