BENGHAZI, Libya - A representative of Muammar Gaddafi offered talks with the rebel National Libyan Council on the Libyan leader's exit but the council rejected any negotiations with a leader they do not trust, a rebel spokesman said on Tuesday.

"I confirm that we received contact from a Gaddafi representative seeking to negotiate Gaddafi's exit. We rejected this. We are not negotiating with someone who spilled Libyan blood and continues to do so. Why would we trust the guy today?" a media officer for the council, Mustafa Gheriani, told Reuters.

Al Jazeera television reported that the council said it may not pursue Gaddafi for crimes they accuse him of committing if he steps down.
