Libyan Ambassador to Belgium, Head of Mission to EU Resigns

Libyan ambassador in Belgium and Head of Mission to EU has announced his resignation live on Aljazeera TV.

Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi's son, Saif Al-Islam, formed a committee to probe the killing of people during protests in many cities of the North African country, Libya's state-run TV reported Monday.
It said the committee would be chaired by a Libyan judge and consists of Libyan and foreign human rights organizations.
Saif Al-Islam, said the TV, formed the committee following the killing of people during the "regrettable" with the task of investigating the causes.

On the other hand, UK Foreign Secretary William Hague suggested that Libyan leader Colonel Gaddafi may be on his way to Venezuela.

Leaving talks in Brussels after agreeing an EU statement demanding restraint and an end to violence by the Libyan regime, Hague told British reporters he had no firm knowledge but went on: "I have seen some information that suggests he is on his way there at the moment." British officials here indicated the Foreign Secretary was not referring to any media speculation but other sources.

Earlier Hague said he had phoned Colonel Gaddafi's son Saif al-Islam yesterday to object to the use of the force and then added: "The son is clearly very much in Libya, but I have no evidence as to the whereabouts of Gaddafi himself".
During a day of talks on an EU response to the Libyan crisis, all EU foreign ministers were being kept updated, but only Hague seemed confident enough to volunteer a likely bolthole for the Libyan leader, the media here suggested.

The Foreign Secretary also spoke of an historic opportunity for the European Union in tackling not just the Libyan situation, but the unfolding chain of popular rebellion across North Africa and the Middle-East.
