Excerpted from MSNBC:

LONDON -- Libyan Foreign Minister Moussa Koussa arrived in Britain on Wednesday to seek refuge after quitting the government in protest against leader Moammar Gadhafi's attacks on civilians.

"He has told us that he is resigning his post. We are discussing this with him and we will release further detail in due course," a British Foreign Office spokesman said, adding that "his role was to represent the regime internationally -- something that he is no longer willing to do."

British officials urged Gadhafi's other supporters to desert him.

"We encourage those around Gadhafi to abandon him and embrace a better future for Libya that allows political transition and real reform that meets the aspirations of the Libyan people," the Foreign Office statement said, indicating that discussions with Koussa would be ongoing.

To bring home the reality to you, the reader, of what Koussa means about attacks on civilians by Gaddafi forces, watch this just released al Jazeera video of new footage that has emerged from the first moments of the uprising in Libya, showing gunmen - who appear to be Gaddafi loyalists - shooting unarmed protesters dead.

With armed men dragging people from Benghazi's mosque, others were left to die on the streets.

Al Jazeera's Sue Turton reports from the city, at considerable risk to her own life:
