Supporters of Libyan leader Colonel Gaddafi appear to be turning their back on him while the international community unites against the bloodshed. The country's Interior Minister has resigned and joined the anti-government protesters, after reports of 300 unarmed civilians being killed in Libya's second largest city - Benghazi. He accused Gaddafi of planning a wide-scale attack on his own country-men. The Italian Foreign Minister told reporters that more than one thousand Libyans may have been killed in just eight days. The UN Security Council demanded an end to the violence on Tuesday, while the Arab League suspended Libya. The French president has called for EU sanctions against the country. Nevertheless, Gaddafi vows to fight till the death and die a martyr in his homeland. In his first major speech since the unrest began, the leader urged supporters to attack the opposition, who he claimed were bribed, drugged and 'serving the devil.'
