WASHINGTON - The White House says the U.S. is moving forward with plans to impose unilateral sanctions on Libya in response to violence there.

Obama spokesman Jay Carney says the U.S. is finalizing that process Friday. He says the U.S. is also working with European partners on additional sanctions and other multilateral actions that could be taken.

The announcement comes as hundreds of Americans are evacuated from Libya following days of violence. Militias loyal to Moammar Gadhafi have been firing on protesters demanding the Libyan leader's ouster.

Carney says President Barack Obama will meet with the United Nations secretary general in Washington Monday to discuss the situation in Libya.
