BENGHAZI, Libya - Libyan rebels rejected an African Union peace plan on Monday because it did not address their main demand that Muammar Gaddafi quit and because it proposed reforming a ruling system they want removed.


"The African Union initiative does not include the departure of Gaddafi and his sons from the Libyan political scene, therefore it is outdated," rebel council head Mustafa Abdel Jalil told a news conference in Benghazi, adding the rebel council demanded Gaddafi leave from the first day it was set up.

Council spokesman Hafiz Ghoga also told the news conference: "The initiative speaks of reforms from within the Libyan system and that is rejected."
