On 25 February 2011 the UN Human Rights Council adopted Resolution S-15/1 on the situation in Libya at its 15th Special Session. Resolution S-15/1 expresses deep concern at the situation in Libya, strongly condemns the recent gross and systematic human rights violations committed, including the indiscriminate armed attacks against civilians, extrajudicial killings, arbitrary arrests, detention and torture of peaceful demonstrators, some of which may also amount to crimes against humanity. The resolution strongly calls upon the Libyan Government to meet its responsibility to protect its population.
