The entrance of the International Criminal Court (ICC) is seen in The Hague March 3, 2011. The ICC's chief prosecutor Luis Moreno-Ocampo said on Wednesday he would investigate the violence in Libya after the U.N. Security Council referred the case to the Hague-based war crimes tribunal. The Security Council on Saturday imposed sanctions on Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi and his family, and referred Libya's crackdown on anti-government demonstrators to the ICC.
