The United States, Britain and France have walked out of a closed meeting of the UN Security Council after Libya compared the situation in Gaza to Nazi concentration camps in World War II. Council diplomats say Belgium and Costa Rica joined in the walkout. It is a rare protest by members of the UN's most powerful body against one of their own members. The council was discussing the possibility of issuing a press statement on recent Mideast events at a closed meeting late Wednesday when Libya's deputy ambassador made the comment.
