Rebels rule out talks

Townsville Bulletin - - World Snapshot -

LIBYAN rebels have ruled out any me­di­a­tion with Muam­mar Gaddafi, pic­tured, and de­manded that he leave the coun­try, as the regime rub­bished any sug­ges­tion that it had made an ap­proach.

Al­though it was un­clear whether the is­sue of im­mu­nity for the man who has ruled Libya with an iron fist for four decades was raised, the head of the rebels’ pro­vi­sional na­tional coun­cil said they would not pur­sue crim­i­nal charges if Gaddafi quits.

Gaddafi had not sent any­one him­self, but ac­tivist lawyers from Tripoli had vol­un­teered as go­b­e­tweens.
