There has been some welcome developments in the last few days, with Libya increasingly isolated on the international stage:
The UN’s top human rights official has called on the world to back the popular revolts shaking the Middle East. UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Navi Pillay said: “The international community bears the great responsibility of extending its support in words and deeds.”…
UN General Assembly President Joseph Deiss, about to decide on an unprecedented suspension of Libya from the Human Rights Council next week, encouraged all “human rights defenders who frequently act in great danger.”
As per Douglas’ request, please feel free to treat this as a general Middle East thread.
