A senior aide to the son of Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi stepped down from his position in a show of protest against the violent crackdown on anti-government protesters, Reuters reported on Wednesday.

Sawani served as executive director of the Gaddafi Foundation, which is run by Saif al-Islam Gaddafi.
