Libya's diplomatic mission to the United Nations on Monday said they were siding with anti-government protesters in a break from what they called, "the regime's despicable actions," the Los Angeles Times reported.

Libyan diplomat Adam Tarbah told the LA Times that a speech by Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi's son on Sunday was "inciting civil war." He added that "it was shameful."

"We are aware that this will put our families back home in danger, but they are in danger anyway," Tarbah told the LA Times.
