"This violence is completely unacceptable," Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton said on Tuesday, speaking about events that continue to unfold in Libya.

"We believe that the government of Libya bears responsibility for what is occurring and must take actions to end the violence," Clinton told reporters at the State Department.

"As always, the safety and well-being of Americans has to be our highest priority. We are in touch with many Libyan officials directly and indirectly and with other governments in the region to try to influence what is going on inside Libya."
