TUNIS - Libya's exiled crown prince urged the UN Security Council on Wednesday to impose a no-fly zone over his homeland and criticized the United States, Russia and other governments as "uncaring" towards Libya's people.

Mohammed El Senussi, whose family was overthrown by Muammar Gaddafi in a 1969 coup, said he had written to UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and Security Council members "imploring urgent intervention to put an end to the killings being undertaken by the murderous regime of Colonel Gaddafi."

He praised Britain, France and Lebanon for putting forward a draft resolution on a no-fly zone, while criticizing the United States, Russia, China, India and Germany for hesitating or opposing such a move.
