Sen. Kerry: Oil firms should stop work in Libya
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Senator John Kerry on Tuesday urged all American and international oil companies to immediately cease operations in Libya, where the death toll mounted as Muammar Gaddafi attacked civilian crowds with tanks and warplanes.
All the oil companies should stop operations "until violence against civilians cease," Kerry, chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, said in a statement. "The Obama administration also should consider reimposing U.S. sanctions" that were lifted during President George W. Bush's administration, he said.
