NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen said Monday he was "shocked by the indiscriminate use of violence against peaceful protesters in Libya," as reports indicated that hundreds were killed by security forces, dpa reported.

In a statement, the Western military alliance chief called upon Libya's regime "to stop the repression of unarmed civilians" and stressed that the "legitimate aspirations" of its people "must be addressed."

"In the long run, no society can ignore the will of the people, because the desire for freedom resides in every human being," Rasmussen concluded.
