Representatives of 61 Libya tribes urge end to Kadhafi rule
Chiefs or representatives of 61 Libyan tribes from across the country called Wednesday for an end to Moamer Kadhafi's rule, in a joint statement released by French writer Bernard-Henri Levy.
"Faced with the threats weighing on the unity of our country, faced with the manoeuvres and propaganda of the dictator and his family, we solemnly declare: Nothing will divide us," said the text, drawn up in Benghazi on April 12.
"We share the same ideal of a free, democratic and united Libya," it said.
