UNITED NATIONS - There are no signs that Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi's government is complying with UN Security Council demands for an immediate cease-fire, UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said on Thursday.

"There is no evidence that Libyan authorities have taken steps to carry out their obligations under resolutions 1970 or 1973," Ban told the Security Council. He was referring to two council resolutions that called for an immediate end to hostilities and imposed a no-fly zone over the country.

Ban said his special envoy to Libya, former Jordanian Foreign Minister Abdelilah Al-Khatib, had personally warned Gaddafi's government the council may take further steps if Libya did not comply with last week's cease-fire demand by the Security Council in resolution 1973.
