Gaddafi accepts African Union peace plan, says Zuma

The South African president, Jacob Zuma, says Colonel Gaddafi's government has accepted an African Union peace plan to end the fighting in Libya.

President Zuma is one of four African leaders attempting to mediate in the crisis. They are now expected to meet with rebel leaders to discuss the deal.

The African Union plan calls for an immediate ceasefire, opening channels for humanitarian aid and talks between rebels and the government.

Mr Zuma said the peace plan is due to be put to rebel leaders in Benghazi on Monday.
