The resolution establishes "a ban on all flights in the airspace of the Libyan Arab Jamahiriya" while excluding an occupation force. It also calls for freezing the assets of the Libyan National Oil Corp. and the central bank because of links to Gadhafi.

That force has advanced along the Mediterranean coast aiming to recapture the rebel-held eastern half of Libya.

After the vote, Libyan officials said the country would protect its own people and said a cease-fire was possible.
