UNITED NATIONS — Key Libyan diplomats disowned Moammar Gaddafi's regime for its brutal crackdown on protesters and the country's deputy UN ambassador called for an urgent meeting of the UN Security Council that will take place Tuesday.

The Libyan ambassador to the United States urged Gaddafi to step down, the ambassador to India resigned as did the ambassador to Bangladesh who protested the killing of family members by government troops.

Almost all Libyan diplomats at the United Nations backed deputy ambassador Ibrahim Dabbashi's pleas to Gaddafi to end his 40-year rule and to the international community to intervene.
