UNITED NATIONS— Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon on Friday urged the UN Security Council to take "concrete action" to protect civilians in Libya and warned that any delay will mean more loss of life.

Ban urged the council at the start of a meeting to consider possible sanctions against Muammar Gaddafi's regime to look at a wide range of actions, including trade and financial sanctions, travel bans, an arms embargo, and measures to protect human rights.

He said "the violence must stop" and those responsible for the violence must be punished.

The secretary-general said he plans to travel to Washington on Monday to discuss the Libyan crisis with US President Barack Obama.
