UN: Implementation of sanctions delays aid to Libya

UNITED NATIONS - The way that sanctions are applied on Libya over the Tripoli government's war against rebels is delaying delivery of supplies to the embattled population, UN aid chief Valerie Amos said on Monday.

"The manner in which sanctions are implemented and monitored is causing serious delays in the arrival of commercial goods," Amos told the UN Security Council.
