A Libyan Ceasefire? Ctd

The AU deal looks DOA:

Libyan rebels have rejected an African Union peace plan because it did not address their main demand that Muammar Gaddafi quit and because it proposed reforming a ruling system they want removed. … Council spokesman Hafiz Ghoga also told the conference: "The initiative speaks of reforms from within the Libyan system and that is rejected."

The international community is also unimpressed:

The African Union's plan has been given a cautious welcome in capitals around the world, with British foreign secretary William Hague stating that any ceasefire agreement must meet the terms of UN resolutions in full. Franco Frattini, Italian foreign minister, said it was unlikely Gaddafi would respect any ceasefire, "after the horrific crimes enacted". And NATO's secretary general, Anders Fogh Rasmussen, said that any ceasefire must be "credible and verifiable".
