Kadhaf al-Dam, a close aide and cousin of Libyan leader , has resigned from "all his official functions," Egypt's official MENA news agency reported on Friday.

Quoting a statement from his office, MENA said Dam -- who had a permanent residence in Cairo and oversaw Libya's relations with Egypt -- quit on Thursday "to protest against the handling of the Libyan crisis."

The statement went on to call for "a halt to the bloodbath (in Libya) and a return to reason in order to preserve the unity and future of Libya," MENA reported, adding that Dam was last in Libya a week ago.
