GENEVA (AP) -- Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton is imploring the world to hold Moammar Gadhafi's regime to account for gross atrocities that include reports of executing soldiers for refusing to turn their guns on their fellow citizens.
Clinton made the plea for the international community to speak with a single voice at Monday's session of the U.N. Human Rights Council. She said that Gadhafi must leave power "now, without further violence or delay."
Clinton addressed the body after pressing America's allies in Europe to set tough sanctions on the Libyan government.
The European Union responded Monday with travel bans, an asset freeze and an arms embargo against the country. Germany went further, proposing a 60-day economic embargo to prevent Gadhafi's regime from using oil and other revenues to repress his people.
