  African Union urges Libyan rebels to cooperate

The African Union has demanded that Libyan rebels should cooperate with the mediators to reach a ceasefire agreement.

The Union says in a statement it released in Addis Ababa earlier today that the opposition’s precondition for ceasefire talks is unachievable.

The rebels demanded that Muammar Gaddafi should step down for them to negotiate a settlement.

Earlier Colonel Gaddafi accepted the African mediators’ settlement plan for Libya, a plan that provides for a ceasefire, humanitarian aid deliveries and talks between the parties to the conflict.

In Libya, clashes continue unabated between the Muammar Gaddafi supporters and the opposition.

The rebels have regained control over the strategically important city of Ajdabiya with the help of NATO airstrikes on Monday.

According to the NATO Secretary-General Anders Fogh Rasmussen, the aircraft have destroyed some 60 of Gaddafi’s armoured vehicles in the past 48 hours alone.

Fighting was also on in the city of Misrata, 200 kilometres away from Tripoli.

Meanwhile the International Red Cross Committee has said that by decision of the Libyan Government it is opening its representative mission in Tripoli and sending a team of experts to Misrata.

NATO bombs Gaddafi facilities again

NATO aircraft have delivered more strikes at Muammar Gaddafi facilities in Libya.

According to Libyan State television, it was again civilian installations that were bombed.

Meanwhile the Gaddafi troops have resumed artillery shelling of the rebel-held cities.

Clashes are specifically reported from Misrata.

Fighting has resumed after the opposition rejected the African Union’s ceasefire proposal.

Gaddafi earlier supported the peace initiative in question. But the opposition insists that he should step down and demands material assistance from the West.

African Union, Libyan opposition talks had no results

Talks between the African Union and the Libyan opposition produced no results. The “road map” which the African Union is suggesting supposes that Gaddafi stays in power for the transitional period, but the opposition says that it won’t stop fire until Gaddafi steps down.
