UNITED NATIONS (AP) - The full membership of the United Nations has suspended Libya from the U.N. Human Rights Council.

The U.N. General Assembly voted by consensus Tuesday on the council's recommendation to suspend Libya's rights of council membership for committing "gross and systematic violations of human rights."

It is also expressing "deep concern" about the human rights situation in Libya.
