Libya, More than 8,000 people were killed in the uprising against the Libyan government.

"The death toll we are more than 8,000," said Abdel Hafiz Ghoga, a spokesman for the rebel movement.

He criticized the Arab League Secretary General Amr Mussa for his comments criticizing the military action by the United States and its allies against Libya.

Arab League has requested the implementation of no-fly zone over Libya to protect civilians from Gaddafi's troops, but Mussa condemned, "the bombardment of civilians by the allied forces."

"What happened in Libya has been different from the purpose to apply the no-fly zone, and that we want is the protection of civilians and no longer bombardment of civilians," said Mussa was quoted as saying by Egyptian state news agency.

Ghoga said: "When the secretary general spoke, I was surprised. What are the mechanisms to stop the extermination of the people in Libya? What is the mechanism? If the protection of civilians is not an international obligation, what mechanism do you propose to us?"
