On the same day that US President Barack Obama condemned Moammar Gadhafi and through a press statement said it was time for the Libya leader to leave, the UN Security Council voted 15-0 in favor of sanctions against Libya and its leader, Moammar Gadhafi.

"The president stated that when a leader's only means of staying in power is to use mass violence against his own people, he has lost the legitimacy to rule and needs to do what is right for his country by leaving now," the White House said.

The resolution includes an arms embargo, asset freeze and travel bans for Gadhafi and several of his key associates.

Also, it refers the violent crackdown to the International Criminal Court.

"The text send a strong message that gross violations of basic human rights will not be tolerated and that those responsible for grave crimes will be held accountable. I hope the message is heard, and heeded, by the regime in Libya," said U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon.

It is uncertain whether Obama will be more direct in calling for Gadhafi’s departure now that the UN has acted.
