Gaddafi accepts African Union peace plan to end Libya conflictApril 11th, 2011 - 8:15 am ICT by ANI
Tripoli (Libya), Apr. 11 (ANI): Libyan dictator Colonel Muammar Gaddafi has reportedly accepted an African Union (AU) peace plan designed to the end the current conflict, South African President Jacob Zuma said from Tripoli overnight.
Gaddafi’s delegation had accepted the AU’s proposals, which would be set out in a statement later, Zuma added.
While other commitments meant he had to leave Libya on Sunday evening, the other members of the African Union delegation would be staying over in Tripoli overnight before travelling west to rebel-held Benghazi, he continued.
There they would put the AU plan, which involves an immediate ceasefire, to the opposition leaders, the Daily Telegraph reports.
So far, the leaders of the uprising have rejected any ceasefire plan which involves leaving either Gaddafi or his sons in power.
As well as Zuma, the AU delegation includes three other African leaders: Mali’s Amadou Toumani Toure, Mohamed Ould Abdel Aziz of Mauritania and Congo’s Denis Sassou Nguesso of Congo. (ANI)
