Britain says Gaddafi must go

Reuters , Sunday 27 Feb 2011

The British government has revoked the diplomatic immunity in Britain of Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi and his sons, Foreign Secretary William Hague said on Sunday, urging Gaddafi to step down.

"Of course it is time for Col. Gaddafi to go," Hague said in a BBC interview.

"That is the best hope for Libya and last night I signed a directive revoking his diplomatic immunity in the United Kingdom, but also the diplomatic immunity of his sons, his family, his household, so it's very clear where we stand on his status as a head of state," he said.
