Spotted: Susan Rice arriving for Security Council consultations on Libya

Ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice was seen arriving at the UN headquarters for Security Council consultations on the peace and security in Libya and other countries in Africa today.

From the LA Times:
The UN Security Council met behind closed doors Saturday to discuss the escalating situation in Libya, a day after Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon condemned the violent actions in the country. Members circulated a draft resolution that would impose international sanctions, including an arms embargo and travel ban for members of the Kadafi regime. The draft resolution also calls for members of the regime to be investigated for possible crimes against humanity in the International Criminal Court, according to the New York Times. The 15-member Security Council has the power, under Chapter 7 of the United Nations Charter, to determine the existence of any threats to peace, and take action to "restore international peace and security".
