Libyan rebels 'will not negotiate' with Gaddafi

The National Libyan Transitional Council has told the BBC there have been no direct contact with the Gaddafi regime amid reports that Gaddafi had asked to negotiate his exit.

Spokesman, Jala al-Gallal, said there would be "no negotiation" until pro-Gaddafi forces ceased "crimes against humanity".

Mr al-Gallal added that Mr Gaddafi should leave, but must face the consequences of his actions.

"To leave is one thing but not to be prosecuted at a further date is not acceptable," he said.
