Libyan rebels won't accept an African Union ceasefire plan unless Gaddafi quits. The AU says Gaddafi agrees to end hostilities and hold talks about political reform, but there's no talk of him resigning. (previous)

    While the details of the AU plan (which Gaddafi agreed to ‘in principle’) and of the earlier Turkish plan (which the insurgents appear to have endorsed ‘in principle) are not clearly stated in public, the two plans overlap in part but the Turkish plan implicitly includes greater safeguards for Libyan Government compliance (i.e. Turkish and other peacekeepers on the ground to ensure the safety of insurgent held areas). The AU plan is suspect because of the financial and political relationship of Colonel Gaddafi with the AU and many of its dictator leaders.
