BRUSSELS - NATO does not know where Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi is and the military alliance does not view him as a target, a spokesman said on Tuesday.

"If you know, let me know. I don't have a clue, and I'm not sure actually that it really does matter, in the sense that the resolution of this situation will be political," military spokesman Colonel Roland Lavoie told a briefing from his base in Naples, when asked if NATO knew where Gaddafi was.

"I think everybody recognizes that Gaddafi will likely not be part of that solution. He's not a key player anymore," he said.

"So from that perspective, we do not know, but I don't think it really matters, although I recognize the symbolic value that it could have for his supporters."
