3. BBC: The government planned to crush protests by killing civilians even before the uprising in Libya
broke out, the International Criminal Court says.

The chief prosecutor said the plans had been a reaction to street protests that led to the fall of the Tunisian regime. Luis Moreno Ocampo is expected to request arrest warrants for Col Muammar Gaddafi, his sons and close aides.

In The Hague on Tuesday, Mr Moreno-Ocampo said: "We have evidence that after the Tunisia and Egypt conflicts in January, people in the regime were planning how to control demonstrations inside Libya.

"The planning at the beginning was to use tear gas and ... shooting," he told Reuters.
