The UN Security Council votes 15-0 on sanctions against Libya
The United Nations Security Council unanimously approved a draft resolution Saturday to impose sanctions against Libya amid Moammar Gadhafi's escalating crackdown on anti-government protesters.
It includes an arms embargo, asset freeze and travel bans for Gadhafi and several of his associates. The resolution also refers the situation unfolding in Libya to the International Criminal Court.
"This is clear warning to the Libyan government that it must stop the killing. Those who slaughter civilians will be held personally accountable," Susan Rice, U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, said immediately after the vote.
