NEW DELHI — Libya's ambassador to India on Tuesday resigned from his post and called on the international community to stop the violent government crackdown against protesters in Libya.

Ali al-Essawi told The Associated Press that he resigned because he could not tolerate the violence his government was using against Libyan civilians.

He said: "The authorities are killing peaceful people, which is not acceptable. We have to stop the bloodshed. It's the responsibility of the international community to stop the bloodshed."
