BENGHAZI, Libya - Libyan rebels on Saturday rejected Muammar Gaddafi's offer for a ceasefire and negotiations if NATO stopped its attacks, saying the time for compromise had passed.

"Gaddafi's regime has lost all credibility," Abdel Hafiz Ghoga, spokesman for the rebel's transitional national council, said in a statement.

The Libyan leader had repeatedly offered ceasefires only to continue violating human rights, it said.

"The time for compromise has passed. The people of Libya cannot possibly envisage or accept a future Libya in which Gaddafi's regime plays any role," it said.
