Britain seeks easing of UN sanctions on Libya

UNITED NATIONS - Britain has circulated a draft resolution to Security Council members that would ease UN sanctions against Libya and hopes to have a vote on it this week, diplomats said on Wednesday.
The draft would have the council begin lifting six-month-old punitive measures imposed on Libya when former leader Muammar Gaddafi was overseeing a crackdown against pro-democracy demonstrators across the country.According to the draft resolution, obtained by Reuters, the resolution would ask the 15-nation council to ease sanctions against Libya's National Oil Corp and central bank to enable those two key institutions to start functioning.
