CAIRO - Libya said on Sunday an Arab League resolution calling on the U.N. Security Council to impose a no-fly zone over Libya was "an unacceptable departure" from the body's charter, Libyan state television said.

The resolution was issued on Saturday by an Arab League ministerial meeting in Cairo. The League has suspended Libya over its crackdown on an uprising against Muammar Gaddafi's rule. The body said on Saturday the Libyan government's "crimes" had stripped it of legitimacy.
