GENEVA (Reuters) - The United Nations human rights forum on Friday condemned violence by Libyan forces against protesters and launched an international inquiry to investigate atrocities which it said may amount to crimes against humanity. The 47-member UN Human Rights Council unanimously adopted a resolution, put forth by numerous delegations, that denounced armed attacks on civilians, killings, arrests, and the detention and torture of peaceful demonstrators. It also called on the UN General Assembly to consider suspending Libyas right to membership in the Geneva forum in view of gross and systematic violations of human rights by the Libyan authorities. A two-thirds majority in the General Assembly would be required for the unprecedented suspension in the Human Rights Council, which was set up nearly five years ago. Hungarian ambassador Andras Dekany, speaking for the European Union, said he looked forward to when a future legitimate government genuinely representing the will of the Libyan people and upholding human rights standards befitting this forum could be welcomed back into the Council. UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Navi Pillay called for international intervention to stop mass killings. She said thousands of people may have been killed or injured in the mounting violence against anti-government protesters, including shots to the head or chest. I always call for independent investigations as a start, but I think in this particular situation, theres need for more state action and intervention for protection (of civilians), Pillay, a former UN war crimes judge, told Reuters Television. Earlier, a Libyan envoy to the Geneva forum renounced links to the government of Muammar Gaddafi, announcing that his entire delegation now represented the free will of the Libyan people. Meanwhile, the United Arab Emirates and Turkey said on Friday they would work together to send humanitarian aid to Libya, where hundreds of people have been killed in an uprising against Muammar Gaddafi. UAE Foreign Minister Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed al-Nahayan, speaking after talks in Abu Dhabi with his Turkish counterpart Ahmet Davutoglu, said his country would send aid to Turkey on Saturday for delivery to Libya. The UAE is sending two planes, to be based in Turkey, to send humanitarian aid from Turkey to Libya, Sheikh Abdullah told a news conference. UAE planes will be leaving tomorrow for Turkey and the first two planes will have supplies from the UAE. Meanwhile, European Union governments reached consensus on Friday on imposing an arms embargo, asset freezes and a travel ban on Libya, but a formal decision will only be taken early next week, diplomats said. After a meeting of ambassadors from the 27 member states, no objections were raised to the idea of imposing sanctions on Muammar Gaddafi and his crumbling government, but the legal language and other details have still to be finalised. Meanwhile, people in Libya are struggling with shortages of food, fuel and medical supplies and could face more difficulty if fresh stocks cannot be brought in, the World Food Programme said on Friday citing reports from evacuees. The WFP said people who had fled Libya had reported difficulties in moving around the country, where rebels have seized control of the east and are moving closer to the capital to try to oust Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi. Meanwhile, Libyas ambassador to France and another diplomat from Tripoli resigned on Friday in response to the revolt against leader Muammar Gaddafi, a Libyan official said.
