TRIPOLI - Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi said on Saturday he was still prepared to enter a ceasefire but that this must involve all sides and not only his own forces who are fighting against rebels in the east.

"[Libya] is ready until now to enter a ceasefire ... but a ceasefire cannot be from one side," Gaddafi said in a live television address in the early hours of Saturday morning.

"We were the first to welcome a ceasefire and we were the first to accept a ceasefire ... but the Crusader NATO attack has not stopped," he said.
