BENGHAZI - The head of Libya's rebel national council urged his fighters on Monday to respect the law and not take violent revenge on members of Muammar Gaddafi's fallen regime, adding that indiscipline among rebels could even lead him to resign.

Mustafa Abdel Jalil, chairman of the National Transitional Council, promised fair trials for Muammar Gaddafi and members of his government and called for tolerance, forgiveness and the protection of civilians and of public and private property.
