    Colonel Gaddafi's sons have spoken out in defence of their father's leadership and denied

    there have been attacks on protesters.

    Saif al-islam and his brother Saadi al-Gaddafi were speaking to Christiane Amanpour from

    ABC News.

    The UN Security Council voted unanimously on Saturday to impose sanctions on Col

    Gaddafi's regime.

    ibyan anti-government protest leaders say they have formed a "national council"

    in eastern cities seized from Moammar Gadhafi, following days of fighting with

    forces loyal to the Libyan leader.

    Council spokesman Hafiz Ghoga said Sunday that the council serves as the face

    of the revolution but is not an interim government.

    Meanwhile, in western Libya, anti-government protesters have taken control of

    Zawiya, some 50 kilometers from the capital, Tripoli. The protesters are

    reported to be preparing to repel an expected offensive by pro-Gadhafi forces

    surrounding the area.
