1:55am: Peru becomes the first country to formally severe all diplomatic ties with Libya. President Alan Garcia said:
Peru is suspending all diplomatic relations with Libya until the violence against the people ceases.
Peru also strongly protests against the repression unleashed by the dictatorship of Muammar Gaddafi against the people who are demanding democratic reforms to change the government which has been led for 40 years by the same person.
