Libya interim rulers set Saturday ultimatum for Sirte

BENGHAZI - Libya's interim rulers have given forces loyal to Muammar Gaddafi in the town of Sirte and elsewhere until Saturday to surrender or face military force, Libya's ruling interim council leader Mustafa Abdel Jalil said on Tuesday.
His forces intended to take over central and southern Libya as well as Sirte, Gaddafi's hometown, and he urged residents to cooperate."By Saturday, if there are no peaceful indications for implementing this we will decide this manner militarily. We do not wish to do so but we cannot wait longer," he told a news conference.
