Arab League Reprimands Libya's Gadhafi

NPR RSS

As pressure mounts on Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi, he's lashing out at the street protesters who've taken control of the eastern part of his country. Gadhafi called the demonstrators who've been demanding his ouster "rats" and said he'd die a martyr rather than be forced from power. The Arab League in an emergency meeting here in Cairo on Tuesday harshly reprimanded the Gadhafi regime for its brutal crackdown on the protests and suspended Libya from the organization.
