Foreign Minister Moussa Koussa says Libya is declaring an immediate cease-fire and stopping all military operations.
Friday's decision comes after the U.N. voted to authorized a no-fly zone and "all necessary measures" to protect the Libyan people, including airstrikes.
Koussa says the cease-fire "will take the country back to safety" and ensure security for all Libyans.
But he also criticized the authorization of international military action, calling it a violation of Libya's sovereignty.
