Pro-Gaddafi protesters converge on UN chief

The protesters in Cairo were carrying banners critical of the US and UN.

Cairo: A group of protesters angry about international intervention in Libya blocked the path of UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon as he left a meeting at the Arab League.

Ban had finished a meeting with the Arab League chief and was leaving the organisation`s headquarters in Cairo when dozens of protesters converged on him and his security detail.

The protesters, carrying pictures of Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi and banners critical of the US and UN, blocked his path as he tried to walk away from the building. Ban returned inside and apparently drove out of the league from another exit.
On Sunday, Arab League chief Amr Moussa questioned Arab participation in the coalition after saying the international attacks went beyond the mandate to impose a no-fly zone.
