The Libyan permanent representative, Ambassador Abdel Moniem el- Honey, announced his resignation from all his posts in the Cairo- based pan-Arab organization and joined the "public protest" that began on February 15 against Muammar al- Gaddafi's regime, it added.

El-Honey expressed his refusal to kill unarmed protestors, saying "as a Libyan citizen, I condemn all these crimes which are close to the genocide acts."

The Libyan revolution was inspired by both the Tunisian and Egyptian protests that toppled both countries' ruling regimes and demand for more political and economic reforms.
