Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is calling for Libyan leader Muammar Qadhafi to step down. In an address to the U.N. Human Rights Council in Geneva, Clinton said "It is time for Qadhafi to go, now, without further violence or delay." Clinton said Qadhafi has been using violent "mercenaries and thugs" against the Libyan people in suppressing the antigovernment uprising that began several days ago. "We want the violence to end," Clinton said, and encouraged that Qadhafi be held accountable for his actions against the protesters. Clinton said the U.S. has pledged $10 million to assist Libyan refugees and is sending help to Libya's borders with Egypt and Tunisia, the Associated Press reports.
