WASHINGTON- US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, armed with new UN Security sanctions on Libya's embattled leader Muammar Gaddafi, headed for Geneva on Sunday to consult with allies on the next steps to end the country's crisis.

Clinton will meet with key European foreign ministers as well as Arab and African envoys in Geneva, where on Monday she will become the first US secretary of state to address the UN Human Rights Council.

US officials say Clinton's trip is aimed at coordinating the international response to Libya's crisis, with Washington insisting that the world "speak with one voice" on stemming the violence and bringing Gaddafi to justice.
