AMMAN, Jordan — The Jordanian government on Tuesday said it rejects targeting civilians in Libya and that the brutal repression of an uprising in the North African country is a "blatant" violation of basic human rights.

In its first public comment on the unrest in Libya, the Jordanian government said it is holding Moammar Gaddafi's regime responsible for the safety of Libyan citizens and foreigners living there.

The unusually harsh statement by Jordanian Foreign Ministry spokesman Mohammed Kayed underlined growing frustration across the Mideast region and around the world with Gaddafi's response to the crisis.

Kayed said "spilling the blood of the brotherly Libyan people must stop immediately."
