Libyan Ambassador to the United Nations Abdurrahman Mohamed Shalgham said he hopes "that within hours, not days," the Security Council will take action against the Libyan government, at a press conference on Friday.

Speaking after the Security Council meeting, the ambassador, who said he represents the Libyan people and not the regime of Muammar Gaddafi, called on the UN's most powerful body to "do something tangible, effective, to stop what they are doing, Gaddafi and his sons, against our people, innocent people." He added that sanctions should be imposed against Gaddafi, his family and those who are involved in the killing, not against Libya itself.
