LONDON - Libyan Foreign Minister Moussa Koussa arrived in Britain on Wednesday and has resigned from Muammar Gaddafi's government, the British government said.

"We can confirm that Moussa Koussa arrived at Farnborough Airport on 30 March from Tunisia. He traveled here under his own free will. He has told us he is resigning his post," a Foreign Office spokesman said in a statement.

The British government encouraged people around Gaddafi to abandon him, he added.
