The Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi has addressed supporters massed in a central square in the capital Tripoli. State television showed him speaking from the old city walls and denouncing foreign interference. He urged the crowd to arm themselves and defend the nation and its oil against anti-government protesters who've taken control of large parts of the country. At one point, Colonel Gaddafi said he didn't intend to resign.

 

利比亚领袖卡扎菲(Muammar Gaddafi)向聚集在首都的黎波里中心广场的支持者发表讲话。国家电视台播放了他在老城墙发表讲话谴责外国干涉的情况。他敦促人们武装起来保卫国家和石油免受已经占领了大范围地区的反政府抗议者的危害。曾经一度,卡扎菲上校表示他不会辞职。

"If I were a president, I would have resigned, I would have thrown my resignation in your face, but I have no position, no post, I have nowhere to resign from. I have my gun, I have my rifle to fight for Libya."

 

“如果我是总统,我可能已经辞职,我可能已经当着你们的面辞职,但是我没有职位,我没有头衔可以辞职。我只有手枪,有来福枪,为了利比亚而战。”

It's been another violent day in many parts of Libya. While the east remains in the hands of the anti-Gaddafi opposition, the capital and parts of the west are being fought over. A mass day of protests had been called, and shortly after midday prayers, protesters came out onto the streets of Tripoli. But the elite brigades commanded by Gaddafi's sons appeared to have been ready. It's difficult to get a full picture as to what is still going on, but according to different eyewitness reports, the military opened fire on the demonstrators as they have in the past. There are unconfirmed reports that there have been a number of deaths and injuries in the clashes. The government is thought to have something in the region of 7,000 to 8,000 troops at its disposal, and they've already showed that they are willing to use them against the protesters in what is starting to look like a fight to the death.

 

在利比亚的许多地方又是暴力的一天。东部地区仍然在反对卡扎菲的反对派控制中,首都和西部的部分地区也正在发生战争。反对派还呼吁在弥撒当天举行抗议活动,中午的祈祷过后不久,抗议者走向了的黎波里街头。但是卡扎菲的儿子指挥的精英部队似乎已经做好了准备。要全面描述当天的情况并不容易,但是据不同的目击者报告,军队像过去一样对示威者开枪。有未经证实的报道称,已有几人在冲突中伤亡。据称,政府在该地区部署了7,000至8,000的兵力,在一场殊死搏斗中,他们似乎已经表示愿意对抗抗议者。

Hundreds of sub-Saharan Africans have been fleeing across Libya's southern border to escape the violence. The International Organisation for Migration says they are being given shelter and food in Niger, but many are ill or injured after being targeted by Libyans fearful of the African mercenaries reputedly recruited by Colonel Gaddafi to maintain his grip on the country. The organisation said it believed many other sub-Saharan Africans were unable to get out.

 

撒哈拉以南数百名非洲人穿过利比亚边境,试图逃离当地的暴力。国际移民组织表示,他们在尼日尔已经获得了住所和食物,但是许多人生病,或者由于利比亚人担心卡扎菲不断招募非洲雇佣兵来保持对国家的控制而受伤。国际移民组织表示,他们相信,撒哈拉以南许多其他非洲人已经难以逃出了。

An emergency session of the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva has recommended suspending Libya from the body. The council also authorised an international investigation into the violence in the country with a view to prosecuting those responsible. The UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Navi Pillay told the council the priority should be the safety of the civilian population.

 

联合国人权理事会在日内瓦召开紧急会议,建议暂停利比亚的成员国资格。该理事会下令对利比亚的暴力事件展开调查,对相关责任人提起控告。联合国人权事务高级专员皮莱(Navi Pillay)告诉该理事会,当务之急是保障当地平民的安全。

"I am hoping that the Human Rights Council will take action on the immediate concern which is the safety of Libyans, who face risks to their lives, who face bloodshed. So all possible international action that can be done should be taken for the protection of civilians."

 

“我希望人权理事会能够对最为紧急的利比亚人的安全事宜采取措施,他们面临着死亡或流血的危险。所以,国际社会必须采取一切可能的措施来保护平民的安全。”
