Algeria wants priority to be given to ending the unrest in Libya, the country's foreign minister said Tuesday.

"The biggest concern today is to stop the spilling of blood in Libya," Foreign Minister Mourad Medelci said in statements carried by state-run APS news agency.

"That is the most important thing, and we give our backing and our support to anything that the international community can do to achieve this," he said.

Some Algerians have arrived by air or across land borders, and a ship dispatched to Benghazi and Tripoli was expected to return to Algiers on Wednesday.

Libyan protesters have staged anti-government protests since Feb. 16, following nationwide demonstrations in Tunisia and Egypt.
