ALGIERS, March 22 (Reuters) - Algeria on Tuesday called for an immediate end to Western military intervention in neighbouring Libya, Algeria's state news agency reported.

"We judge this intervention to be disproportionate in relation to the objective set out by the United Nations Security Council resolution," the APS news agency quoted Algerian Foreign Minister Mourad Medelci as saying. "(We demand) an immediate cessation of hostilities and foreign intervention." (Writing by Christian Lowe; Editing by Janet Lawrence)
